'World as Laboratory: Experiments with Mice, Mazes, and Men' by
Lemov explores the behavi***sciences during the years 1900-60, after
which much of the human experimentation previously conducted acquired
an odious reputation; the author remarks she was predisposed to
dislike the psychologists, anthropologists, and sociologists who
conducted it. Lemov improved her opinion of them, but her well-
researched book nevertheless imparts a sense of uneasiness about human
engineering. An outgrowth of stimulus-response experiments on animals,
behavior modification of people became the goal of ambitious
psychologists such as John Watson, coiner of the conditioned-response
theory. Tellingly, he eventually went into advertising, while in his
wake in the 1920s, foundations directed by behaviorist enthusiasts
funded behavi***science centers at Yale and Harvard. With World War
II, Lemov remarks, their denizens traded lab coats for uniforms,
applying behavi***theories to occupied areas. A balanced account of
the behaviorists' crusade, Lemov's history provides crucial backstory
to contemporary practices in psychology and mass media.
