Radical Behaviorism and Buddhism: Complementarities and Conflicts
Diller, James W.; Lattal, Kennon A.
Behavior Analyst, v31 n2 p163-177 Fall 2008
Comparisons have been made between Buddhism and the philosophy of science in general, but there have been only a few attempts to draw comparisons directly with the philosophy of radical behaviorism. The present review therefore considers heretofore unconsidered points of comparison between Buddhism and radical behaviorism in terms of their respective goals, conceptualization of human beings, and the outcomes of following either philosophy. From these comparisons it is concluded that the commonalities discerned between these two philosophies may enhance both philosophical systems.
