Dr. Clark, toward the end of the last interview, you went into the genesis of your
presidential address to the American Psychological Association, but you did not go into
any details or all the details about the conduct of your presidency, the first year as
president-elect and then the year when you'd actually been installed.
All right. By the way, I have a copy of that followup to the presidential address, which
I delivered last week in Washington to the American Psychological Association. The
Association had its meeting in Washington, and they invited me to give a presentation on
behavior modification and freedom, and I used the occasion to really re-state my position
of five years ago, and to share with my audience my experiences during the five years, in
terms of the critics of my position five years ago, and some of the things which the
criticism required me to think through more clearly, and in the process of thinking them
through, surprisingly, I came to the same position I had before.
I'll give you a copy of that, if you'd care to have it.
