The European Journal of Behavior Analysis and Behavior and Philosophy are pleased to jointly recognize the contributions of Dr. Murray Sidman to the discipline of behavior analysis. From 1976 to 1981, the journal then titled Behaviorism, now Behavior and…

In order to stimulate informal discussion of behaviorism among the readership, we have invited Murray Sidman to let us have his comments on the current scene as a regular feature of this journal. He has accepted. The following remarks constitute the body …

I have often wondered if others share my conviction that errorless learning proves the learning process to be all-or-none rather than continuous. Perhaps everybody already knows this, or perhaps it is obviously wrong. Either alternative would explain why …

I occasionally announce to students that the first obligation of any good behaviorist is to conform to the laws of behavior. After all, if behaviorists flouted the laws of behavior why should anyone else obey them, and where would our Science be then? The…

To the extent that behavior is governed by reinforcement contingencies, we may agree with B.F. Skinner that operant behavior is essentially the field of purpose. I should like to take another step and suggest that behavior under stimulus control is essent…

I suggested last time that cognition and stimulus control are essentially the same field, that the analytic units appropriate to a science of knowing should be the same units with which we analyze relations between behavior and its controlling environment…

I am always somewhat disconcerted when colleagues, telling me about their research, describe the experimental design before acquainting me with the problem the experiment is addressing. They seem not to recognize that an experimental design is empty until…

In Tactics of Scientific Research (Sidman, 1960/1988) I expressed my opinion that most philosophers of science know little or nothing about how scientific research is actually carried out. It appeared to me that the philosophy and the tactics of science h…

I have always thought of Sidman's classic text, known affectionately as Tactics (1960), as primarily a philosophy of science text. I was surprised to learn that Sidman himself did not see it as particularly relevant to the philosophy of science (Sidman 20…

There is no way to overstate the importance of Murray Sidman's contributions to applied behavior analysis. This series of Remarks represents just a few of those. I'd like to take this opportunity to restate some of Sidman’s (1977) comments on aversive c…

I had the pleasure of talking with Murray Sidman at a conference not too long ago. I had something important to tell him. "Murray," I said, "I have been studying your work for nearly 30 years, and I've found something that you wrote that was wrong." "On…

As a graduate student working in Murray Sidman's group at the Shriver Center when his Remarks series came out, I recall clearly reading each one as it appeared and discussing the series with my advisor, Larry Stoddard. I recall just as clearly my question…

You are at a dinner table with unknown people, and you say to the person sitting across from you "Pass the salt, please"; with no hesitation the person passes the salt, and you say ―Thank you.‖ You come with your dog to a street corner and say "sit"; …

"[R]esearch reports. . .in applied behaviour analysis seem to emphasize experimental design at the expense of the study's substantive aims. It is sometimes difficult to brush away the uncomfortable impression that design is becoming an end in itself, that…

The core analytic unit in any evolutionary perspective is variation and selective retention. Behavior analysis has always been part of the community of evolution sciences, but in some ways it is the most thorough going because it is most willing to consid…

I am deeply honored by the invitation to comment on Murray Sidman's Remarks (Sidman, 1976, 1977a, 1977b, 1978, 1979, 1981, 2011). At the same time, I have to agree with Sidman's own comments in one of those remarks: "It is difficult to add anything cogent…

I was surprised and to a considerable extent pleased that Per Holth and Jay Moore, two behavior analysts for whom I have the greatest respect, thought that my six Remarks columns, published back in the late 1970s and early 1980s, were still sufficiently s…
