Guest Host: Marc Fisher
The Russian scientist Ivan Pavlov is widely regarded as the father of behaviorism, a field he developed by supposedly training dogs to salivate at the sound of a bell. But according to a comprehensive new biography of Pavlov’s life and times, his work has been widely misunderstood. Pavlov’s dogs never heard bells and behavior alone wasn’t central to his later work. We explore the tumultuous life of this scientific trailblazer, and learn why his work still resonates nearly 80 years after his death.
