Definition from SPN, Bratislava:
behaviorizmus - smer psychológie, najmä americkej

Example sentence(s):
  • Behaviorizmus je smer americkej psychológie 20. storočia, ktorý neuznáva vedomie ako predmet vedeckého výskumu a redukuje psychiku na rozličné formy správania, chápaného ako súhrn reakcií organizmu na stimuly vonkajšieho prostredia. -  
  • Behaviorizmus skúma pozorovateľné reakcie vyvolané vonkajším podnetom, pričom chýba akékoľvek preukázanie k javom vedomia. -  
  • Zakladateľom behaviorizmu bol John Broadus Watson, profesor Hopkinsovej univerzity v USA. Behaviorizmus dominoval v 30. - 50. rokoch najmä v USA, kde ovplyvnil sociológiu, pedagogiku, a do istej miery aj lingvistiku. -
