Karl LashleyIn hmolscience, Karl Lashley (1890-1958) was an American child prodigy turned zoologist-geneticist who, together with his mentor John Watson (1878-1958), penned some of the first arguments of behaviorism—the antagonist of dualism.

The following are noted quotes:

“The essence of behaviorism is the belief that the study of man will reveal nothing except what is adequately describable in the concepts of mechanics and chemistry.”
— Karl Lashley (1928), “The Behavioristic Interpretation of Consciousness” [1]
