  •  B.F. Skinner Anyone? (0+ / 0-)

    Read Walden II. I am amazed this isn't mentioned in this diary.

    Science attempts to answer WHAT. Religion contemplates WHY. Politics settles for WHO CARES.

    •  I thought to mention it... (0+ / 0-)

      I read Walden II in college and was struck by Skinner's concept of a more-efficient, more-productive 20 hour week.  I just did not want commentors to get side-tracked on Skinner and his whole behaviorist thing (which I'm not much for).

      But yes, if I had decided to write a more extensive essay I would have include Skinner's thoughts.... thanks for bringing it up!
