ABSTRACT
This writing is an homage to the work of B. F. Skinner, now that we recently celebrate a century of hisbirthday. Most of current psychology texts are centered in the author’s experimental discoveries withoutputting them in the epistemological context position that sustains them, generating a deformed image ofhis ideas. This writing searches to clarify some of the aspects of Skinner’s work that are more misinterpreted,in particular his epistemology, his scientific behavior and his position in front of the complex humanbehavior, with the purpose of fomenting a precise image of his work and his science: the ExperimentalAnalysis of the Behavior.
