The diagram on the left is a copy of the diagram in the article 'Cognitive Maps in Rats and Men' by Edward C. Tolman. Tolman thought of himself as a behaviorist but he was a pioneer in Cognitive psychology. The diagram itself is a link to the pages related to Cognitive Psychology.

The Behaviorists Approach:

The Behaviorist believes you were born a blank slate and on that slate your life is written. All aspects of your life depend solely on what you are exposed to. Your successes are not your own but rather are the success of your parents and peers in their ability to shape your existance. Free will does not exist and over the next two to three weeks we will be proving to you that you have never made an independent decision in your entire life
