We have already seen how behaviourism implies that the environment determines all of our actions, thus rejecting the idea that people have free will. For example, in education, “learning is demonstrated by the behaviour of the learner in their actions or reactions to further stimulus” (Woollard; 2010).

This ‘balancing act’ was referring to the notions of free will and the unconscious struggle.
