...Behaviorism Part Learning process has been a crucial consideration for the early educators and philosophers and has been continuous to date. A retrogressive approach to research in the development of learning process and concept reveals behaviorism as one of the major theories that significantly influenced learning process up to the 20th century. In relation to the theory of behaviorism, students were expected to learn only basic skills such as arithmetic, reading and writing. According to behaviorism theory, learning is a permanent change is behavior that has little to do with the mental process; thus the...

...Behaviorism Psychology Development of Behaviorism (Ancient to Modern Psychological Development) Behaviorism is a behavioral approach to psychology. This psychological perception combines the concepts of methodology, theory and philosophy to study the factors leading to certain actions of individuals. Behaviorism emerged methodologically and systematically in the early 20th Century as an antiphon to the “mentalistic” psychology. The “mentalistic” psychology often showed much difficulty to the psychologists in relation to the disorder’s diagnosis and making of predictions concerning this disorder that was...

...Behaviorism Outline the short-comings of behaviorism as an approach to psychology. One of the key setbacks of behaviorism as an approach to psychology is the fact that the behaviorists tend to perceive or label all aspects of human behavior, strictly as a response to stimuli. The behaviorist approach is entirely deterministic whereby it is essentially assumed that any human reaction is directly dependent on and related to their environment and that their reactions are solely controlled by the environment thus in the process denying any role played by their own choice of actions or free will. The behavioral...

Evidently, in Watson’s psychology review paper, the fundamental precincts of behaviorism were based on notion that beliefs could be changed, trained and measured. To this end, behaviorism or behavioral psychology is based on the notion the all behaviors resulted from conditioning. This condition process manifests itself through an active environmental interaction. Thus, the implication connoted by behaviorist is that environmental stimuli responses determine behavior. In...

Watson laid the foundation of Behaviorism OR Behavioral Psychology, with the publication of his paper ‘Psychology as the Behaviorists view it’ in 1913; catering the belief that all behaviors are attributes that are measureable, trainable and changeable (Cherry, 2012). Watson saw psychology from the perspective that it was not a study of the mind or consciousness; rather it was a measure of behavior and that humans like apes and rats could have their behavior objectively studied (DeMar, 1989). Behaviorists believe that behavior can be measured irrespective of the internal mental states and the objectivity of behavior measurement... ?...

The foundation of behaviorism is based upon the notion that conditioning causes all behaviors to be acquired after being in constant contact with the environment.

...Behaviorism Behaviorism In psychology, the behaviorism concept started because of the scholarly works of Watson John in 1930 inwhich the findings were that the behavior exhibited by individuals is measurable, coachable, and changeable. The implication of this was that most of the acquired or portrayed behaviors require certain environments or catalysts in order for them to thrive. As a result, behaviorists assert that people behave as per the environments that dwell in meaning that their surroundings have a great influence over how they behave. Additionally, Watson found that the behaviors...

This form of learning has also been termed “engaged learning”, because when instructions are handed out, learners are expected to follow each stage in the educational development; and at the end of the lesson, they will have mastered the subject-matter they were learning about (Kettermann & Marko, 2002).

It is from this premise that Watson attempted to modify behavior by training animals through the manipulation of their environment which proved to be the most effective way of studying learning (Hothersall, 1995).Watson's use of the stimulus - response model to study animal behavior earned him the title of "the true father of behaviorism" according to Hothersall (1995).

This theory was first put forward by Thomas Hobbes who claimed that sense is what brings about materialism. Through sense, human beings are able to think, dream, imagine, and even remember. For him all that is mental is either partly sense or stems from sense. For example if one feel pain, Hobbes claim that the pain is material since it is a motion in one’s body.
