Advancing the study of behavior and its humane applications in society, this book explores behavioral studies and the analysis of behavior.
Progress in Behavioral Studies outlines the contributions of behavioral science to education, behavioral medicine, and other related disciplines. Individual papers report on progress made through the cautious introduction of quantitative formulations into analysis, the increased interchange of analysis with other disciplines such as economics and ethology, and the continuation of behavioral science as a basis for understanding more complex phenomena.
