First, you have to unpack the idea in act. For behaviourism, the behaviour is what
you are doing. All in between is the activity in the world.
1.Impulse. We all have impulse, which is about the any feeling of needs of
doing something. Example: feeling thirsty means something in the
environment like stream or the impulse inside of need to drink. What does
that come from? It is from you inside and environment at the same time. You
have the need, and the environment stimulate you want to drink. The inside
and the environment cannot be separated. We as the organism for many
years, survival by drinking water, and in the environment with many water.
So it is dynamic system.
2.Perception: you have impulse of drinking water; you may even at the same
time see a glass of water in front of you. It is about you look around; you find
all the things that are relevant to my impulse. But can you drink it? When
you are thirsty, you will looking for anything in the environment that is
relevant to you desire like to drink. Animal see the water and will drink. But
human is more evaluated, human beings are selected to be the most
stimulate??????....they will make choice
3.Manipulation: not you look at the glass of liquid, but you drink it. It may be
poison. Human will manipulate the objects in the environment before they
make actions. You may have a book saying that you have to boil the water to
drink it. But not just drink it directly. So that you are able to extend your
think to the future and to the back. Like I have see many clear liquid before,
which is different or same or other types of thinking. So that you mind
activity is extended temporarily to have broad thinking.
4.Consummation: human has perceived the world and objects, and then found
that … he put this in the evolution context, that human with all the ability
are more likely to survive.
Human is behaviour is continuous with world. Animal has weaker ability of
doing all the things. And other way: there is always dynamic relationship of the
situation and you. It is back and forth relationship. The dynamic relationship with
the environment leads to his idea: interaction, which is not about the natural
environment abut it is with other people.
Interaction: being a natural scientist, who are studying human in an internastic
way; what the basic level and higher level of capacity of human and animal:
