B.F. Skinner quotes

I came across a few quotes here and there from BF Skinner:

  • The real question is not whether machines think but whether men do. The mystery which surrounds a thinking machine already surrounds a thinking man.
  • I did not direct my life. I didn’t design it. I never made decisions. Things always came up and made them for me. That’s what life is.
  • Physics does not change the nature of the world it studies, and no science of behavior can change the essential nature of man, even though both sciences yield technologies with a vast power to manipulate the subject matters.
