Abstract: Behavior analysis is different than traditional psychology in that we believe behavior is to be studied as a natural science. Like physics or chemistry, we conduct research and develop theories for explanations of behavior. More specifically, behavior is a consequence of a person’s interactions within their environment, and these “interactions” are what we study. Like other natural sciences, behavior analysis follows a methodology that describes our science. These are (1) determinism, (2) empiricism, (3) experimentation, (4) replication, (5) parsimony, (6) philosophical doubts, and (7) pragmatism. When clinicians follow these “attitudes” of behavior analysis, we are most able to solve problems of social significance.
