Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Questions about human behavior and diversity have captured the attention of scientists from a wide range of philosophical stances for centuries. While behavior analysts would argue that natural science is an enlightening perspective when applied to the understanding of human behavior, at times visceral arguments within anti-ABA campaigns are reminiscent of discrimination practices experienced by immigrant communities in Britain after World War Two. In this paper we discuss the root cause of this discrimination and suggest a way forward based on what are basically complementary views on the goals enshrined in evidence-based practice.
