by A. Charles Catania, Ph.D.


We will direct the analysis of verbal behavior to political verbal behavior, giving special emphasis to verbal governance and to research that shows how the shaping of verbal behavior can be effective in changing what people do. We will give particular attention to the role of correspondences between saying and doing and to the distinction between truth and lies. Political propaganda will provide some of our examples.


Learning Objectives:

Participants will learn to:

  1. interpret instances of political speech in terms of the behavior such speech may occasion on the part of listeners.
  2. distinguish verbally governed behavior, occasioned by verbal antecedents, from contingency-shaped behavior, directly shaped by its consequences.
  3. describe how histories of say-do correspondence may lead to verbally governed behavior so potent that it overrides direct shaping by contingencies. 
  4. apply behavioral criteria to analyses of political speech, and to explore contingencies that may be useful in counteracting their harmful effects.
