Relations between Speech and Psychology: Accomplishment and Aspiration
In the Preface of this book I indicated that I expected Learning Theory and the Symbolic Processes (1960b) to be my “last will and testament” as far as the psychology of language was concerned. The present paper, written the same year that Symbolic Processes appeared, also attempts a kind of “summing up,” but in briefer compass, and suggests certain further developments that could be anticipated in the decades immediately ahead. Considerable optimism seemed justified at that time, since there then existed a general theory of learning which accommodated the psychology of language better than prior learning theories had done. And whereas speech and psychology had, up to this point, been relatively independent disciplines, both administratively and conceptually, it now seemed likely that they would draw closer, at least conceptually. In other words, new syntheses and integrations seemed imminent.
