What Do Mental Terms Mean?
Moore, Jay
Psychological Record, v60 n4 p699-714 Fall 2010
Psychologists and philosophers have long been interested in two questions: (a) What do mental terms mean? and (b) what role do mental terms play in explanations of behavior? In the current sketch I review how mediational neobehaviorism, cognitive psychology, and the radical behaviorism of B. F. Skinner address these questions. In so doing, I seek to clarify the meaning of mental terms, as well as their role in explanations of behavior. (Contains 1 table.)
