Behavior: Observable changes in the describable state of living organisms that are initiated by these organisms themselves or that represent a reaction to external stimuli where there is a certain choice of reaction. Accompanying thoughts are not part of behavior, as otherwise an arbitrary extension of the frame of reference would make it impossible to determine behavior. See also Actions, Behaviorism, Mentalism, Naturalism, Observation, Method, Frame theories.

Kevin Kelly on Behavior - Dictionary of Arguments

Morozov I 214
Behavior/Social Networks/Technology/Politics/Economy/Kelly/Morozov: Kelly thesis: Only by listening to the history of technology (...) can we hope to solve our personal puzzles.(1)
, >Social networks.
Kelly: we can modify our legal and economic expectations by adapting them to the (...) technological development lines.(2)
I 215
MorozovVsKelly: Why should we change our economic and political assumptions if we could change those lines of development instead? Why change our notions of privacy if we could change Facebook and Google instead? Why should we accept predictive policing measure instead of restricting them to areas where they do not undermine contradiction and reason? And to what extent should we change our expectations?
KellyVsMorozov: instead, he thinks you should try every idea immediately. And continue as long as this idea exists.(3)
>E. Morozov.
I 216
Behavior/KellyVsAmish/Kelly/Morozov: Kelly accuses the Amish of denying opportunities not only to their own people, but to all people. (4)
MorozovVsKelly: It never dawned on Kelly that political communities may be entitled to determine their own lives, and that restrictions as far as they have been democratically created - as is not always the case with the Amish - could also be good for humanity. Kelly's all about the means.
>Democracy, >Society, >Community.
