Radical behaviorism is the school of thought that behavior, rather than consciousness should be the primary topic for study when it comes to psychological science. The term has evolved to represent the type of behaviorism proposed by B. F. Skinner which emphasizes the importance of reinforcement along with its relationship to behavior.

RADICAL BEHAVIORISM: "Radical behaviorism is a term coined to distinguish this school of thought from that of John B. Watson."
