Psychology Lecture 4 : Skinner

We will not be meeting Thursdays at 1pm to discuss the week’s lecture and reading. If you would like to watch the lecture together we can set aside Tuesdays at 1pm for that but if everyone is ok with watching the lectures on their own, we can skip that and just plan on meeting Thursdays.

For this Thursday (in order of importance. The first two are the most important. The other two readings are less important)
