Toward a deconstruction of the metaphor of behavioral momentum

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (1):111-112 (2000)
Abstract
The metaphor of “behavioral momentum” exemplifies modernism at its best and follows in the wake of countless other applications of Newtonian mechanics and “the machine metaphor” to virtually every aspect of the human condition. Modernism, however, has fallen on hard times. Some of the chief reasons why are implicit in the target article by Nevin & Grace.
