Am I misunderstanding you here? You claim that mentalism would
require a complete revision of biology! With no offense intended, that
staement makes me seriously doubt your training and understanding.
Mentalism is indeed a force in behavioral biology. Many, hell most,
phanomena of behavior are straining to explain with mentalism.
Behaviorism is in no better shape. Also, the predictions of
behaviorism continualy fail to be realized. Thats why classical
behaviorusm was abandoned.
