In the Shadow of the Enlightenment II: Reimarus and His Theory of Drives

Julian Jaynes and William Woodward
Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences, 1974, 10, 2.

Abstract:

Continues a discussion of Reimarus and The Enlightenment. Reimarus's Triebe der Tiere (Drives of Animals) (1760), an expansion of his Principal Truths (1754), classifies animal behavior into three types of essential drives. This thorough attack on empiricism is presented, critically discussed, and evaluated in terms of its place in intellectual history.
