BF Skinner

I recent uncovered thiscollage, from the days when I was working on my PhD.  BF Skinner gets a lot of bad press, but I think people fail to see everyhting he contributed to the study of behavior.  Every paradigm has strengths and weakness, and every person gets to use, recombine and adapt these archetypal approaches. Learning not to idolise or demonise entire philosophies is part of growing up as an academic, and taking responsibility for your own intellect.
