Behaviorism
Behaviorism

a theory of psychology which states that human and animal behavior can and should be studied only in terms of physical processes, without reference to mind. It led to theories of learning which explained how an external event (a stimulus) caused a change in the behaviour of an individual (a response), based on a history of reinforcement. Behaviourism was used by psychologists like Skinner, Osgood, and Staats to explain first language learning, but these explanations were rejected by adherents of GENERATIVE GRAMMAR and many others (Richard & Schmidt 2002, p. 49).
