An overview of key papers preceding Sidman equivalence.

Abstract:

:In behavior analysis, research on stimulus equivalence has been an area of high activity for more than 45 years. Murray Sidman's contribution was crucial in the development of this field, and, thus, it seems informative to highlight the experiments that were necessary in the development of the descriptive model of equivalence relations and behavior. The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of the significant work that gave the historical context for Sidman and colleagues' conceptualization of stimulus equivalence as it was presented in 1982. This article emphasizes the 31 papers and chapters written by Sidman and colleagues that focus on research questions within stimulus control. The chapters and papers are organized according to their dimensions in behavior analysis and according to whether they can be categorized as instruction programs or experimental studies. The issues discussed regarding these papers and chapters include types of stimuli, matching, discriminations, and others. Collectively, this early work influenced methods and considerations about stimulus control issues that have been important to the development of stimulus equivalence.
