Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Had I faced the same requirement I likely would have shared your fate, Frank.  My '70s characterization of Skinner's "approach" was: "A psychology whose resolution cannot distinguish between the behavior of a rat and a man, because it is incapable of rising to even the level of the rat is useless beyond rudimentary things."  He epitomized scientific reductionism at its worst--extending even to placing his own daughter in a "Skinner box" for warmth and nourishment!  A moral monster.

"It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
