Comments on this book typically deal with the controversial elements of freedom and dignity, however, often overlooked in reviews, is Skinner's assertion that values, ethics and morality are within the purview of a behavioral science (Chapter 6). Unlike most scientists who, like Stephen Gould, continue to see a separation of "facts" from "shoulds," Skinner shows how both can be addressed (explained, predicted and controlled) within a scientific paradigm. As to other scientists who believe science can account for morality, e.g., the neuroscientist Sam Harris, Skinner provides the much stronger argument.
