Koestler, Arthur. The Ghost in the Machine. New York: Macmillan, 1968.

Milgram's discussion of hierarchy in Obedience to Authority, q.v. this Category[1]; see entries below for B. F. Skinner[2] and J. B. Watson[3]. Note with title a classic insult to the view of the mind-body dualism in the thought of R. Descartes.[4]
