Summary
B.F. Skinner developed wonderfully ingenious gadgets designed to enhance his workspace, and he created clever ways of organizing the writing that was the central focus of the last decades of his life. In this program, Skinner's daughter, Julie Vargas, gives viewers a tour of the basement study in which he wrote many of his books and articles. Dr. Vargas and her sister also share fond memories of their father, who was a very involved and loving parent, happily setting aside his writing goals to be available to them
