Alan Alan Watt - Experiments - Ep. 9 - "BF Skinner" - Sept. 12, 2023

BF Skinner was an American psychologist and behaviorist, considered the father of Behaviorism. Considering free will to be an illusion, Skinner saw human action as dependent on consequences of previous actions, a theory he would articulate as the principle of reinforcement: If the consequences to an action are bad, there is a high chance the action will not be repeated; if the consequences are good, the probability of the action being repeated becomes stronger. Skinner developed behavior analysis, especially the philosophy of radical behaviorism, and founded the experimental analysis of behavior, a school of experimental research psychology. He also used operant conditioning to strengthen behavior.
