Abstract : The report explores the need for developing a method of systematic analysis, description, and classification of behavioral events as a preliminary step in evolving generalized theoretical formulations and utilizing available knowledge. The theory and methodology of taxonomy are reviewed in relation to the problem of integrating empirical knowledge obtained from discrete behavioral events. Current efforts to construct taxonomic systems for behavior are examined. An organization of effort is suggested for further development of (1) a theoretical framework for interrelating behavioral research at all levels of generality and (2) a more restricted task classification system for ordering training principles and training content.
