Perception and Stimulus Generalization
A methodologic analysis (cf., Galanter, 1962; Goldiamond, 1962; Graham, 1958) will be used in an attempt to show how sensation and perception, along with a number of other traditional topics, can be placed under the general heading of stimulus control and made compatible with an experimental analysis of behavior (Malott, 1969).
