Abstract

Connections between behaviorism and the philosophies of William James, George Herbert Mead, and other late 19th and early 20th century American philosophers have been discussed in other works. The journal published by the Charles S. Peirce Society promotes the study of these scholars, and thus contains material of relevance to behavior analysis. Representative articles are described in (a) philosophy of science, (b) philosophy and psychology, and (c) history of philosophy and psychology.

Key words
