5 A Changing Reality: The Science of Human Behavior (John Searle)

In his fifth talk from his series ‘Minds, Brains and Science’, John Searle considers the discipline of human behavioral science. Professor Searle explores the limits to the insights that we can expect from a ‘science’ of human behavior. He considers the success of the natural sciences. Why have they not given us more information about human behavior? What makes the subject so different to sciences like physics and chemistry?

This talk was part of the Reith Lectures given by John Searle, American philosopher and Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley. The rest of the talks from this series can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBHxLhKiPKxBg93nx9e1HpQMN93Rm6TRR
