Overview

This volume goes beyond theory and gives the empirical and conceptual tools to conduct an experimental analysis of virtually every substantive topic in human language and cognition, both basic and applied. It challenges behavioral psychology to abandon many of the specific theoretical formulations of its most prominent historical leader in the domain of complex human behavior, especially in human language and cognition, and approach the field from a new direction. It will be of interest to behavior theorists, cognitive psychologists, therapists, and educators.

Ready for a trip? Wanna go somewhere strange? Want a new picture of what your thoughts are like, and why? Wanna know why you can't stop thinking about ice bears when you're told to? Well if the answer is Yes, then buy this one. It's not easy reading, but the reward comes with the effort. Amazing stuff!
