Caption: Burrhus Frederic Skinner (1904-1990), American experimental psychologist. Skinner worked mostly at Harvard University, USA. He conducted numerous psychological experiments, developing his theory of operant conditioning. This elaborated classical theories of conditioning (from Pavlov), that state that a stimulus can act to reinforce behaviour. Skinner identified different reinforcement types and rates: intermittent or continuous, interval or ratio, and fixed or variable. Skinner's work and theories influenced many theories on education of children and adults. Skinner is also known for his book Walden Two (1948), which described a utopian society run on his operant principles.
