This is a response to Vol 14 Larry 9 ("I'm not from a Skinner box")...
You are probably right when you say that Skinner would have enjoyed my vociferous response to his point of view. Like Socrates, we are both gadflies who love to argue.
I just wanted to say that I also enjoy YOUR vociferous responses to my point of view and I have always found you to be a worthy opponent. In fact I sometimes disagree with you just for the sheer pleasure of it all! Exciting new ideas are thrown like sparks in all directions and sometimes I even change my mind! You can always count on me to pay you the ultimate tribute of a good quarrel.
