Book Description

Keller and Shoenfeld’s Principles of Psychology, published in 1950, was written as an introductory text to be used in the two-semester Psychology 1-2 course at Columbia University. It is a systematic approach in that a small number of functional relations described in B. F. Skinner’s The Behavior of Organisms are introduced and then used throughout to interpret the topics presented in a typical introductory psychology course. K & S was widely influential in familiarizing psychologists and others with the nature and general relevance of Skinner’s approach. It is an outstanding example of clear and interesting technical writing, and its style and topic arrangement have been the basis for a number of subsequent texts. Although old by textbook standards, it is still one of the easiest ways to acquire an accurate repertoire in the science of behavior.

Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Fred S. Keller and William Schoenfeld taught at Columbia University when this book was written. They designed the content for their Introductory psychology course, a course that included a lab in which students taught rats the processes described. The book follows topics typically taught in Psychology courses, explaining them using the scientific analysis first developed by B. F. Skinner. The principles described form the basis of Applied Behavior Analysis today. Keller continued his interest in education and developed the Personalized System of Instruction (PSI).
