In the literature, it has been stated several times that there is a relation between the radical behaviorism of Skinner and connectionism; specifically, a lot of similarities are mentioned. This paper summarizes the findings of an extensive research project examining this relation. Apart from similarities in the field of the learning of verbal behavior, some important differences in this field are addressed as well. Furthermore, it is argued that the comparison in this field should be considered within a broader perspective of general similarities and differences. Behaviorism and connectionism differ profoundly in the basic principles that are adopted: what are real entities, and what can be subject of research? These differences are crucial and make these two scientific movements incompatible.
