Concept and What is: Philosophical Behaviorism | Psychology

Philosophical Behaviorism

The English word behavior means behavior or conduct. Behaviorism is a generic term that groups various and even contradictory currents of thought in psychology, but whose fundamental element the behavior.

Philosophical Behaviorism, or termed as Logical Behaviorism or Behaviourism analytical theory consists of an Analytical study of the meaning and semantics of the concepts and cognitive structures.

That philosophical line, based largely on studies of Wittgenstein and Ryle, argues that the concept of State of mind or mental disposition is, in reality, the design of behavioral disposition or behavioral tendencies. Thereby, relates directly to thinking and acting, to establish this bond between the metal and the behavioural profile. By tenter define what is a mental States, if you're performing a description of behaviors, or behavioral models, thus the philosophical Behaviorism analyzes the intentional mental States and mental States representative.

When you assign States, processes or mental events to people, if you are making statements about their behavior or concrete behavioural provisions. This relationship is plausible and significant processes and behaviors between intrinsic contrasts to the typical dualism of modernity, and suggest a new script for investigation for possible behavioral science.

In order to synthesize the kind of thinking the philosophical behavorismo itself can be considered as constituted around five basic propositions:

1. "I'm in pain" and "he's in pain" are values of the same propositional function "X is bad".

2. the my email ID of my inner experiences (pain, for example) is made up of direct and immediate mode, that is, I have a privileged access to my inner experience.

3. the inner experience of others, I have no direct or immediate access. Only your behaviour is accessible.

4. the propositions about the Interior experiences are not in a relationship logically required with propositions about the behavior (i.e., are not logical or analytical character considerations that justify the deduction of the existence of a given interior experience from observation of a particular behavior).

5. the relationship between the inner experience and behavior is established on the basis of empirical laws.
