Abstract

B.F.Skinner’s interest in the nature of science is evidenced by the works he has read, the people with whom he has associated, and the writings he has published (1976, 1979, 1983). However, his ideas on the nature of science are scattered through more than forty years of publication. This is unfortunate because those ideas constitute a distinctive interpretation of science that is worthy of wide consideration. My objective here is to promote such consideration by presenting an exposition of the most salient features of Skinner’s understanding of science.
