    About this item:

    Over a hundred years have passed since the birth of behaviorism or

    behavioristic psychology, often regarded as the “first force” in contemporary

    psychology. many might assume that “the dark night of behaviorism” has

    subsided once and for all, especially since the behavioristic paradigm has

    been superseded by the cognitive revolution and other developments, such

    as psychoanalysis (“second force”), humanistic psychology (“third force”)

    and transpersonal psychology (“fourth force”). however, this assumption

    would be incorrect as it initiated one of the most powerful currents of modern

    psychology in the twentieth century. us it launched an assault on the

    human microcosm by decisively abolishing, if not radically trivializing, the

    role of the psyche or soul and the spiritual dimension in an unparalleled

    fashion. although less known, this destructive paradigm was perhaps even

    more influential than psychoanalysis that predates its existence but did not

    emerge into a movement in america until later on, nonetheless behaviorism

    has had an irrevocable impact on the way that the human psyche was universally

    understood across the diverse cultures prior to the advent of modernism

    and the development of modern psychology.
