Psychologists Epstein and Skinner:"behavioristic" interpretation of cognitive phenomena

Uploaded on Sep 28, 2010
Psychologists Epstein and Skinner in a classic classroom film originally released in 1982 and dubbed "best film of the year" by the American Psychological Association. In sometimes stunning footage, the film shows that pigeons, with the right training, can behave in ways that appear to demonstrate advanced human phenomena: self-awareness, insight, problem solving, imitation, symbolic communication, and even the use of a memorandum. The film defends a "behavioristic" interpretation of cognitive phenomena.
