Freud meets Skinner: Hyperbolic curves, elliptical theories, and Ainslie interests

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (5):660-661 (2005)

Ainslie advances Freud's and Skinner's theories of homunculi by basing their emergent complexity on the interaction of simple algorithms. The rules of competition and cooperation of these interests are underspecified, but they provide a new way of thinking about the basic elements of conditioning, particularly conditioned stimuli (CSs).
