However, 12 years after this material was published and 51 years after the events described, Skinner denied that his graduate school days had been so difficult.

Although Skinner’s school days are of minor importance in the history of psychology, his differing versions illustrate the difficulty that historians face.

Perhaps the world itself was a vast clock made and set in motion by the Creator. Scientists such as the British physicist Robert Boyle, the German astronomer Johannes Kepler, and the French philosopher René Descartes agreed with this idea, expressing the belief that the harmony and order of the universe could be explained in terms of the clock’s regularity—which is built into the machine by the clockmaker just as the regularity of the universe was thought to be built into it by God.
