Newstalgia Reference Room with Author, Philosopher and eminent Psychologist B.F. Skinner discusses Beyond Freedom and Dignity and host a Question and Answer session. From 1972.
June 12, 2012

B.F. Skinner - one of the twentieth century's most influential Psychologists and Thinkers.

Since The Reference Room encompasses all things, not just Politics, I ran across this Interview/Q&A with Philosopher/Psychologist B.F. Skinner given as part of the Program On Campus from 1972.

The topic for discussion is Beyond Freedom and Dignity, and Skinner offers some keen insights on the Human condition, circa 1972.

It's always interesting to contemplate what he'd have to say about our current state of affairs, but since he hasn't been with us for a while, we can only guess.

Here is that interview, followed by the Question and Answer period, as it was broadcast on June 17, 1972.
