And here's what's funny: I didn't say that behaviorism was the only explanaiont of behavior now did I? In fact, with the dogs I specifically mentioned INSTINCT. There are also imprints.
But since you can't control either of those, you change beahvior with behaviorism.
And know how I turned off the comments with the comment that invariably people start asking debating what they THINK I'm saying rather than what I'm actually saying.....look at what you wrote and compare it to the actual article and what I said.
