Rumbaugh's theory links positions of Wilson, Skinner
Date:5/1/2009

lson's as far as pushing us to a better understanding of the evolutionary basis for all behavior," Naour said in an interview. "The legacy of Skinner, Wilson and Rumbaugh in the history of 20th century science will most certainly expand during this new century."

Naour came into possession of Wilson-Skinner tape just as serendipitously as he came to meet Rumbaugh.

Naour and Wilson had developed a cordial relationship during the 1990s when Wilson consulted on the creation of a neuroscience major at Muskingum College in Ohio, where Naour was an associate dean. Intrigued by Naour's disparate background graduate work in behavioral psychology, Skinner's domain, and doctorate work related to evolutionary psychology, Wilson's area of expertise Wilson challenged Naour to add context to the conversation. The invitation came abruptly as Naour was driving Wilson to catch a plane in Columbus, Ohio. The tape had actually been lost for a period of time, and was at the time newly discovered by an assistant cleaning the office.

"He (Wilson) didn't think anyone could make heads or tails of the conversation," Naour recalled. "He quickly sent the tape to me and asked me to see if I could do something with it some day."

Naour called the taped conversation "a precious archive that I felt obligated to do something with." Upon receiving it, he quickly transcribed the tape and planned to present it in a book with some commentary. However, his administrative responsibilities were taking an ever-larger share of his time, Naour pushed the book to the back burner while he contemplated how to present the conversation in a more compelling way.

"I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Duane, who helped influence my thinking, and to Great Ape Trust," Naour said. "If I had not encountered Duane at the level I had, if he had not been in Des Moines, this would have been a very different book, and not as forward-thinking."

Through Rumbaugh, Naour met Dr. H. Carl Haywood, prof
