    Maybe behaviorism isn't complete B.S.

    As a psychology major, I had to immediately go out and get this book upon hearing 'rave' reviews. I went into reading this book with a certain bias against behaviorism in general since I found most of Skinner's theories on certain matters to be non-sense. However, this book really is a real eye-opener and an enjoyable, easy to understand novel. Even if you are against what Skinner preached, go out and get this because it really reveals the fault in every system instituational or not in this country...

    An Eye-Opener

    A very interesting book. Skinner provides solutions to many problems in our country and culture. His solutions seem strange at first, but once you think about them, you realize how backward our culture is and how practical it could be. The book is written like a story, which makes the reading easier. He gets technical once in a while, but it's not too difficult. It's a book I would recommend to my friends.

    Maybe the worst book I've ever read.

    Skinner would have done well to write an essay rather than trying to package his ideas in a loose narrative. Extremely unsatisfying, poorly veiled allusions, flat, unsympathetic characters, and almost no plot. The whole book is forced and contrived. Unless you are extremely interested in behaviorism, do NOT read this book. It's definitely not literature.

    A different perspective than 'Walden' but interesting

    For those of you who do not know Skinner, he was one of the most famous behaviorists in the history of psychology. Behaviorists believed that human behavior is totally controlled by the environment and that our social problems therefore come from 'wrong' reinforcement contingencies between our behaviors and the feedback we get from our environment. Thus, Skinner wrote this novel to show how it was possible to build a good community if it was based on the 'right' contingencies of reinforcement. Although it does not focus on cultural mythology and what it means to be human, this book shows how people can cooperate and have fulfilling lives by simply working a few hours a day to keep the community functioning, and then spend time on what they really enjoy doing. Skinner also discusses very important issues. Behaviorists believe that different individuals are interested in different things and also learn at different paces. Thus, children need to be in an environment where they can master their interests at their own pace, with a lot of personal attention yielding to more and more independence with age. Skinner then illustrates what such education would be like, with small laboratories being set for children to experience many things and thus learn by seeing the meaningfulness of what they are taught. In short, Skinner tries to recreate the workings of natural selection with behavioral engineering methods. The argument is that human beings have stopped experimenting with what works and what does not work. Our civilization has settled down in its own ways, and now tries to fix its problems from the inside, blinded by the false belief that civilization was the best thing ever made. Skinner argues that there are better ways to live, and that to find them we need to experiment with different things and find what works for everyone of us. Although you might find a few of its chapters plain silly, or even scary because of the 'engineering' of behavior, this book is a great read to see what may be possible to do beyond civilization.
