For people who studied information and communication sciences, the behavioral phase is synonym of early development and lack of understanding. This was the 50’s, democracies weren’t as mature as they’re now and everybody believed that we could be manipulated without consent. Orson Welles and K.Dick were around, Soviet Russia too. The world was different.
It’s funny to notice how behavioral sciences came back during the past few years. Mainly through behavioral economics thanks to rock stars such as the nobelized Daniel Kahneman or Amos Tversky. Also through behavioral thinking within social interactions.
Slides 11 and 12 inspired me these thoughts.
The coexistent breeding of social/behavioral and psychological beams helps us tolerated once radical thoughts. Never say never. Pavlov would love that.
