B. F. Skinner
Skinner posits that values come from your personal experience. You get punished or rewarded for things you did, and that reinforcement is what determines what you’ll deem good and bad.
Values are created by never ending stories of a combination of behavioral reinforcements and extinction.
The Labeling Theory or
Cultural Relativism Theory of Values
conti. of labeling theory
Values would be relative from culture to culture, from one society to another.
According to this theory, things, ideas, events, behavior, are neither good nor bad per se. It is society which labels them as either good or bad.
