Behavioral Contingency Analysis by Francis Mechner, Ph.D.
Behavior is a complex subject matter involving multiple functions that change over time, and as a result its own symbolic language is helpful for describing change. Francis Mechner's Behavioral Contingency Analysis provides this language. It describes all kinds of situations, from teaching to theory of mind to deception. And it does so in the best of behavioral/selectionist traditions, by analyzing complexity in terms of simple components.
