Notes that J. R. Kantor's interbehavioral psychology and Skinner's radical behaviorism, while sharing a number of similar features, also differ on a number of dimensions. Some of these similarities and differences are examined by describing their emergence in the professional literature and by comparing the respective units of analysis of the 2 approaches--the interbehavioral field and the 3-term contingency. It is concluded that the similarities are largely fundamental and that the differences are largely ones of emphasis. Nonetheless, the 2 approaches make unique contributions to a natural science of behavior, the integration of which can facilitate the development of that science and its acceptance by other sciences and society at large.
