Free will is an illusion and all human actions depended on the consequences of one's previous actions – that’s one of the most memorable B. F. Skinner quotes ever. B. F. Skinner (1904-1990) was not only an American behavioral psychologist but was an author, inventor and social philosopher. He had over the years taught at many institutions, one of his longest tenures being at Harvard University. His quotes are not only relevant in the sphere of psychology; they are relevant to everyday lives.
"Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten"
Skinner was not only renowned as a psychologist; his authorial skill made him a known name outside the psychology world. Having authored 21 books on a variety of subjects, Skinner is best known for his works like the “Walden Two” and “Verbal Behavior”. Many of his scientific inventions set the world abuzz. His pigeon guided missiles were a revolutionary idea at the time. His inventions also included devices that could help study animal behavior extensively. The contribution of Skinner in the fields of psychology and science makes him a great inspiration.
