-The imaginary people joining these discussions, inside the head of Mr. Soler, will be dealing with behavior-analytic concepts, metaphysical theories, philosophy of language, and of behavior. As there will be no real people, however, there will be no discussion, but rather long digressions that will be published in the form of posts. Each post will advance an idea that highlights a philosophical or theoretical issue related to human behavior.
