Toward A New Behaviorism: The Case Against Perceptual Reductionism - Scientific Psychology Series (Hardback)William R. Uttal (author)
- We can order this
Although this is an iconoclastic and minority view, the book shows how many contemporary perceptual scientists have qualified their thinking with regard to what their data and theories mean even while generally accepting the empirical findings. It is, without question, an attempted refutation of some of the primary assumptions of contemporary theory. Summing up the author's convictions concerning some of the most important questions of human nature, this book is a statement of a point of view that has provided a framework for his personal answers to some of these important questions of human history.

"In Toward a New Behaviorism: The Case Against Perceptual Reductionism, the distinguished and prolific vision scientist William R. Uttal has offered an extended, thoughtful, far-reaching analysis of the prospects for understanding perceptual phenomena by reducing them to other domains....There is much that I find important and thought provoking in this book. I recommend it highly to anyone engaged in the reductionist enterprise within vision science, which means just about anybody who studies vision these days.
