  2. Emergent Behaviorism.Peter R. Killeen - 1984 - Behaviorism 12 (2):25-39.
    In this article I examine Skinner's objections to mentalism. I conclude that his only valid objections concern the "specious explanations" that mentalism might afford ? explanations that are incomplete, circular, or faulty in other ways. Unfortunately, the mere adoption of behavioristic terminology does not solve that problem. It camouflages the nature of "private events," while providing no protection from specious explanations. I argue that covert states and events are causally effective, and may be sufficiently different in their nature to deserve (...)

    Minding Behavior.Peter R. Killeen - 2004 - Behavior and Philosophy 32 (1):125-147.
    There is a conflict of interest in behaviorism between diction and content, between clean speech and effective speech, between what we say and what we know. This article gives a framework for speech that is both clean and effective, that respects graded validation of hypotheses, and that favors distinction over doctrine. The article begins with the description of SDT, a mathematical model of discrimination based on statistical decision theory, which serves as leitmotif. It adopts Skinner's distinction between tacts and mands, (...)

    Gradus Ad Parnassum: Ascending Strength Gradients or Descending Memory Traces?Peter R. Killeen - 2005 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (3):432-434.
    Decay gradients are usually drawn facing the wrong direction. Righting them emphasizes the role of stimuli that mark the response, and leads to different inferences concerning the factors controlling response–reinforcer associations. A simple model of the concatenation of stimulus traces provides some insight to the problems of impulse control relevant to ADHD.

    Doing Versus Knowing.Peter R. Killeen - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (6):1063-1064.
    Aristotle's four causes frame Webb's question. Comprehension requires specification of trigger, function, mechanism, and representation. Robots are real models of function. Physical, biological, and epigenetic constraints delimit the hypothesis space for candidate mechanisms. Robots constitute a simplified system more susceptible to formal representation than the target system. They thus constitute an important tool in a constructivist development of scientific knowledge.

    Boxing Day.Peter R. Killeen - 2000 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (2):259-260.
    A convincing case is made for the importance of conditioning in social interaction, but more than Pavlovian conditioning is involved: UR (unconditioned response) modification, imprinting, Skinnerian conditioning, and other forms of behavior modification are adduced as Pavlovian. Beyond its value as an icon, control theory is not brought to bear in an informative fashion on these phenomena.

    The Future of an Illusion: Self and its Control.Peter R. Killeen - 1995 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (1):133-134.
    Rachlin introduces a new theory before exhausting its predecessor. His earlier model of future-discounting may be developed by integrating over the duration of extended rewards and punishers. The difference in value of an event within a pattern over the event in isolation derives from the deprivation provided by the pattern; yet the pattern attracts because acute rewards are more potent than incremental deprivations.

    Freud Meets Skinner: Hyperbolic Curves, Elliptical Theories, and Ainslie Interests.Federico Sanabria & Peter R. Killeen - 2005 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (5):660-661.
    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).
