Is operant selectionism coherent?

  • François Tonneau (a1) and Michel B. C. Sokolowski (a2)

Abstract

Hull et al.'s analysis of operant behavior in terms of interaction and replication does not seem consistent with a genuine selection model. The putative replicators do not replicate, and the overall process is more reminiscent of directed mutation than of natural selection. General analogies between natural selection and operant reinforcement are too superficial to be of much scientific use.
