Rational behaviorism embraces respondent, operant, and emergent behaviors generated by cognitive operations of the brain. This chapter discusses Tolman's work on rational behaviorism and proposes a three-part framework of rational behaviorism. It also discusses the logic of memory systems and characteristics of emergents and formulates assumptions about the role of brains in enhancing the adaptation for species in general.

Keywords:   rational behaviorism, respondents, operants, emergents, cognitive operations, brain, Tolman, memory systems, adaptation
