Science of Self-control by Howard Rachlin

Book Description

This book proposes a new science of self-control based on the principles of behavioral psychology and economics. Claiming that insight and self-knowledge are insufficient for controlling one's behavior, Howard Rachlin argues that the only way to achieve such control - and ultimately happiness - is through the development of harmonious patterns of behavior. Self-control may be seen as the interaction with one's own future self. Howard Rachlin shows that indeed the value of the whole - of one's whole life - is far greater than the sum of the values of its individual parts.

Escape of the Mind by Howard Rachlin Escape of the Mind, Hardback (July 2014)

The Escape of the Mind argues that, in developing techniques of self-control and social cooperation, it is useful to question the almost universally accepted belief that our minds exist inside our bodies. We should look for our minds neither in our introspections nor in our brains, but in our long-term behavioral patterns.

Matching Law by Howard Rachlin Matching Law, Paperback (April 2000)

This collection consists of Richard Herrnstein's most important contributions to the social and behavioural sciences - his papers on choice behaviour in animals and on his discovery and elucidation of a general principle of choice called the matching law.
