Assn 5. Due  Monday, September  15



Make wiki pages: B. F. Skinner’s Walden Two


= Link your pages to the Walden Two page on the wiki.


= While the easiest way to marshal material is to excerpt it from the web, writing the material yourself, based in books, articles and other non-electronic sources, is the way of academic, intellectual life. Pursue knowledge through McCulloch Library’s many resources. In addition, your text offers additional reading that can help us understand the text.


= At a minimum, you need to help your classmates understand, recognize or know the following:

= Who was B.F. Skinner?

= What were Skinner’s ideas about behavior? Psychology?

= Who was John Stuart Mill?

= What is utilitarianism?

= What has happened to the ideas Skinner proposed in Walden Two?


= What else can you contribute to the conversation?

What else does the web offer?

What questions can you pose that will help us understand the ideas of this book and their relevance to us?

= What (dis)connection or (ir)relevance does Thoreau’s Walden have for this book?

= What, if any, is the significance of the year of the composition of Walden Two?

=  Why should we know about utilitarianism to understand this book thoroughly?
