Attempts by radical behaviorists to create a better society are marked by serious analytical and philosophical shortcomings. It is argued that the allegiance of behaviorism to the ideology of technocracy serves primarily to reinforce existing societal structures. Although behaviorism is being used mostly to preserve the regnant social order, it is suggested that behaviorism is potentially capable of becoming a significant catalyst for social change. 1991 American Counseling Association
