Example text

Over the decades of such research yet another conception of human nature has been crafted; one in which the sources or causes of significant actions may well be different from the explanations the actual actors give.

BEHAVIORISM One abiding goal within the scientific community, at least since the nineteenth century, has been to demonstrate the ultimate unity of science.

Born in central Russia in the village of Ryazan, and the son of an Orthodox priest, Pavlov was originally intended for the priesthood, but, like Darwin—indeed, partly because of Darwin—he decided to pursue a scientific career instead. At the University of St. Petersburg he studied chemistry and physiology, receiving his doctorate in 1879. Pavlov did not set out to contribute to psychology; the experiments that made him famous began as studies of digestion, which was the topic of research for which he won the Nobel Prize in 1904, and he was dubious about the new discipline of psychiatry.
