Sample text

His first publications were in education and in audi­ tion. Otherwise, all his efforts were devoted to formulating a com­ prehensive theory of behaviorism. Weiss died aged 52 after a serious illness. 54 Weiss’s treatment of behavior was as comprehensive as Wat­ son’s; the concept embraced all phenomena from the smallest muscle twitch to all the actions and symbolic processes required to write books, while also extending outwards from the tiniest possible indi­ vidual acts to the furthest reaches of society.

At first sight, it seems Progressivism did not control the development of sociology at Chicago. For example, Martin Bulmer has argued that Park, Burgess, and their followers wished to study sociological phenomena purely objectively. In particular, he refers to the numerous occasions on which Park repudiated the work of the social survey movement, where the intent was to collect data that could then be presented in such a way as to engender ameliorative community action. However, there are substantive continuities between Progressivism and the be­ ginnings of empirical sociology in America.

While teaching at Chicago, Park collaborated with Charles Johnson of the Chicago Commission of Race Relations and was employed by the The Birth of Psychological Behaviorism | 29 Carnegie-funded Americanization study of 1918–19. Another Chicago faculty member, Ellsworth Faris, spent the first seven years of his working life as an African missionary. Finally, the Chicago school’s characteristic work had its origins in the work of an early faculty member, Charles Richmond Henderson, who was more of a social worker than a sociologist and had close working contacts with vari­ ous community agencies.
