From Skinner to Rogers; Contrasting Approaches to Education.
Milhollan, Frank; Forisha, Bill E.
The primary thrust of this book is the presentation of two divergent models of man, the explicit and implicit philosophical assumptions which characterize each view, the conditions of learning compatible with each model, and the educational implications of each position. An introductory section considers the two models of man--the phenomenological orientation and the behaviorist orientation--and provides some history of the development of these viewpoints. The scientific psychology of B. F. Skinner is considered within its historical and philosophical background, within his analysis of behavior and the process of learning, and within the implications for teaching of the technology of teaching. Carl Rogers' humanistic psychology is also examined within these contexts. (Author)
