Susan M. Schneider, PhD 8:06pm to 9:00pm

Biopsychologist Susan M. Schneider, PhD, has an international reputation in nature-nurture relations and the principles of learning from consequences. Currently a Visiting Scholar at the University of the Pacific, she has been a professor at St. Olaf College, Auburn University, and Florida International University, and a visiting research fellow at the University of Auckland in New Zealand.  Her new book, The Science of Consequences, describes that science, its role in the larger realm of nature and nurture, and its many applications.

Proposed questions:

  • 1. What are the main themes of the book?
  • 2. What exactly is a consequence?
  • 3. Why is it useful to know something about how consequences work?
  • 4. Your take on the nature-versus-nurture debate is essentially that there isn’t one . . .
  • 5. So, how do nature and nurture work?  What exactly does it mean that “it’s a system”?
  • 6. Can you give an example of how learning from consequences affects the brain?
  • 7. You discuss nature-nurture relations and education.  I take it that you don’t consider intelligence to be fixed?
  • 8. What is the positives-to-negatives ratio?  That crops up several times in your book.
  • 9. What are some of the biggest success stories of the science of consequences?
  • 10. Can there really be a science of consequences?
  • 11. How did you get interested in this area and come to write the book?
  • 12. What do you hope the book will accomplish?
