Review

‘A spirited and engaging account ... both revealing and gripping’ -- Scotsman

‘An unusual and compelling personal journey combining the emotional and the scientific’ -- Time Out

‘Makes for fascinating reading, helped along by Slater’s charm and resourcefulness’ -- Sunday Telegraph

Synopsis

A century can be understood in many ways - in terms of its inventions, its crimes or its art. In Opening Skinner's Box, Lauren Slater sets out to investigate the twentieth century through a series of ten fascinating, witty and sometimes shocking accounts of its key psychological experiments. Starting with the founder of modern scientific experimentation, B.F. Skinner, Slater traces the evolution of the last hundred years' most pressing concerns - free will, authoritarianism, violence, conformity and morality. Previously buried in academic textbooks, these often daring experiments are now seen in their full context and told as stories, rich in plot, wit and character.
