Book of the Week:
Opening Skinner’s Box: Great Psychological Experiments of the Twentieth Century, by Lauren Slater



“Through nine examples of ingenious experiments by some of psychology’s most innovative thinkers, Slater traces the evolution of the century’s most pressing concerns — free will, authoritarianism, conformity, and morality. Previously described only in academic journals and textbooks, these often daring experiments have never before been narrated as stories, chock-full of plot, wit, personality, and theme.”
