1. What does reductionist and mechanistic mean? (weakness of behaviourism)

  • Humans can have conscious insight into their behaviour, and can actively change it
  • reduces bahaviour to stimulus-response units. Individual treated as a machine: stimulus occurs, and because of conditioning, certain response is given.
  • assumes conditioned animal behaviour is same as human behaviour, ignores role of cognitive processes
  • It is rigorous, controlled and replicable
  • Behaviour modification affective in reducing problem behaviour
  • Clear definition of cure and measures of improvement
  • Do not seek the underlying reasons for problem behaviour
  • Behaviourism allowed psychologists to develop on science with objective, verifiable facts about behaviour
  • Rats and humans similar responses, so findings can be applied across animals
  • according to operant conditioning behaviour should change to avoid punishment, but dogs put up with the punishment in one experiment
  • alla behaviour as determinned by past experiences that have been conditioned-no free will-no human agency
  • reduces bahaviour to stimulus-response units. Individual treated as a machine: stimulus occurs, and because of conditioning, certain response is given.
