Title
Beyond Freedom and Dignity: Behavioral Fixated Delusion?
Abstract

A response is given to Skinner's premise that the traditional concept of autonomous man, one who has freedom and dignity, has been shown unscientific by behavioristic data. However, it is not Skinner's data, which is attacked, but the theoretical assumptions, which he relates to the data. Since the data is compatible with both the traditional and Skinnerian views it does not prove or disprove either view. Arguments are presented showing the inadequacies of Skinner's view as well as the strengths of the traditional view that man does have freedom and dignity.
