Using ordinary examples of everyday human behaviors, this new book conveys—in a friendly, conversational manner—a basic behavior repertoire in many aspects of behaviorology. The cover of this 400–page, 27–chapter book points this out: “As we shift from pre–scientific understandings to helping build a sustainable society in a timely manner, answering this matters: Are the causes of our behavior in our stars, in our selves, or in our contingencies?”
The book is written for anyone concerned to understand human behavior better, especially as it relates to current global issues and human survival. The book is not about psychology as behaviorology is not any kind of psychology. In the first half of the book, the chapters consider a little history and philosophy of science along with some principles, methods, concepts, and practices of behaviorology. In the second half of the book, the chapters cover some scientific answers to some long–standing human questions (e.g., questions about values, rights, ethics, morals, language, consciousness, personhood, life, death, and reality) with the final chapter discussing interconnections between behaviorology and solutions to global problems, along with some necessary steps to make these and other contributions possible.
