Book News
Although not as well known as John B. Watson and B.F. Skinner Kantor established a highly naturalistic and conceptually systematic psychology which is highly consistent with today's convergence in the naturalization of behavioral, developmental, social and cognitive sciences. This collection of 12 articles and commentary upon them describe both the foundations of Kantor's concepts of interbehavioralism but also the converging movements. The former include a biographical sketch and work on the evolution of scientific psychology, the interbehavioral field and research. The latter include a survey of the converging movements and studies of developmental systems and psychological science, cognitivism and the schema of "perception-and-cognition," the narrative turn in social psychology, "Q" methodology and naturalistic subjectivity and behavioral analysis. The collection closes with a bibliography of Kantor's published work. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
