Description

Behaviouralism (or behavioralism) is an approach in political science that emerged in the 1930s in the United States.

Behaviouralism (or behavioralism) is an approach in political science that emerged in the 1930s in the United States. It represented a sharp break from previous approaches in emphasizing an objective, quantified approach to explain and predict political behaviour. It is associated with the rise of the behavioural sciences, modeled after the natural sciences. Behaviouralism claims it can explain political behaviour from an unbiased, neutral point of view.

Behavioural approach to politics or behaviouralism (both the terms are used in the same sense) denotes that it is an attempt to improve our understanding of politics by seeking to explain the empirical aspects of political life by means.

Behavioural approach to politics or behaviouralism (both the terms are used in the same sense) denotes that it is an attempt to improve our understanding of politics by seeking to explain the empirical aspects of political life by means of methods, theories and criteria of proof that are acceptable according to the canons, conventions and assumption of modern empirical science. David Truman, in his famous essay published in 1951, defined behaviouralism in the following words: Defined generally the term political behaviour comprehends those actions and interactions of men and groups which are involved in the process of governing.

Behaviorism was gradually developed by some psychologists during the first decade of the twentieth century. In fact, for many, behaviorism was akin to an intellectual war against introspective methods. There were several streams that motivated this. One was the effort to introduce methods of ‘objective’ natural science into psychology. The need for an objective, more scientific psychology was expressed in several countries: V. Bechterev in Russia, H. Piéron in France and J. B. Watson in USA called for a ‘new psychology,’ closely related to physiology. Their success depended on the historical, religious and scientific context in each country.
