Operant behavior and the thesis of “selection by consequences”

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (3):546-547 (2001)
Abstract
Behavioral theorists such as B. F. Skinner have argued that the thesis of selection by consequences applies to behavior just as much as to morphology. This commentary specifically examines certain respects in which the thesis of “selection by consequences” applies to the development of ontogenic operant behavior.
