H]owever, a more powerful relation exists if necessity can be shown (that y occurs only if x occurs). The most complete and elegant form of empirical inquiry involves applying the experimental method to identifying functional relations. (Johnston & Pennypacker, 1993a, p. 239) The understanding gained by the scientific discovery of functional relations is the basis of applied technologies in all fields. Almost all of the research studies cited in this text are experimental analyses that have demonstrated or discovered a functional relation between a target behavior and one or more environmental variables.
Determinism Science is predicated on the assumption of determinism. Scientists presume that the universe, or at least that part of it they intend to probe with the methods of science, is a lawful and orderly place in which all phenomena occur as the result of other events. In other words, events do not just happen willy-nilly; they are related in systematic ways to other factors, which are themselves physical phenomena amenable to scientific investigation. If the universe were governed by accidentalism, a philosophical position antithetical to determinism that holds that events occur by accident or without cause, or by fatalism, the belief that events are predetermined, the scientific discovery and technological use of functional relations to improve things would be impossible.
This was followed by his classic text, Science and Human Behavior (1953), in which he speculated on how the principles of behavior might be applied to complex human behavior in areas such as education, religion, government, law, and psychotherapy. Much of Skinner’s writing was devoted to the development and explanation of his philosophy of behaviorism. Skinner began his book About Behaviorism (1974) with these words: Behaviorism is not the science of human behavior; it is the philosophy of that science.
