Sample text

The standard view is that it has been left behind in the same way that we have left the nineteenth century behind. As John Watson wrote in 1913: Psychology as the behaviorist views it is a purely objective experimental branch of natural science. Its theoretical goal is the prediction and control of behavior. Introspection forms no essential part of its methods, nor is the scientific value of its data dependent upon the readiness with which they lend themselves to interpretation in terms of consciousness.

The word introspection need hardly be defined – it means, of course, looking into our own minds and reporting what we there discover. (James 1890/1950, I, p. 185) Let’s first ask what has been the fate of introspection as a method in the experimental science of the mind? The standard view is that it has been left behind in the same way that we have left the nineteenth century behind. As John Watson wrote in 1913: Psychology as the behaviorist views it is a purely objective experimental branch of natural science.

On some readings, a commitment to naturalism simply amounts to taking one’s departure in what is natural (rather than supernatural). But it is fair to say that the use of the term in current discourse mainly signals an orientation towards natural science, and further that many contemporary naturalists endorse a form of scientism according to which natural science is the measure of all things. In other words, on a dominant reading naturalism is committed to the idea that the only legitimate way to study the mind is by means of objective natural science.
