This chapter sets the scene by considering in partly historical terms the theories of philosophical and psychological behaviourism. This discussion is not a mere digression. It establishes where a non-reductive theory such as the one presented in the book fits into the picture of behaviourism as it emerged in the twentieth century. Such a theory need not be embarrassed by being called ‘behaviourist’.
