Behaviorism at 100


Comment

It seems important to check misconceptions as they occur or they get out of hand. This morning I heard a story (NPR) where a Chinese father was recommending frequent physical punishment of children under 12 years old. He said these children are undeveloped animals so he had to resort to Pavlovian methods. Pavlov did work with animals as many scientists do, but he never recommended punishing children in development. It is easy to discredit important scientific contributions in the public eye by describing them inaccurately.
