Abstract:

the present article corresponds to a theoretical study on the concept of self-knowledge and freedom in radical behaviorism, with the objective to argue the relation between these concepts. after discussing the definition of self-knowledge and its social origin, skinner's vision of freedom is approached. the existence of freedom depends on the self-knowledge, and this is the linking between the two terms. the conclusion is that nobody can free of this control, but with self-knowledge, it's possible to modify the environment and change coercive controls for positive reinforcement and thus, achieve a better quality of life.
