Description: This course reviews the conceptual, theoretical, and philosophical foundations of behavior analysis. This class reviews the goals (description, prediction, and control) of a scientific study of behavior and associated philosophical underpinnings and assumptions (e.g. selectionism, pragmatism, empiricism, determinism, behaviorism, and parsimony). The readings are comprised of a textbook and seminal articles concerned with radical behaviorism and a natural science approach to the study of behavior, some of the component areas comprising behavior analysis (the experimental analysis of behavior, applied behavior analysis, and associated professional practice), and the dimensions of Applied Behavior Analysis.
