In Walden Two, behavioral psychologist B. F. Skinner describes one of the most controversial fictional utopias of the twentieth century. During the 1960s and 70s, this novel went on to inspire approximately three dozen actual communities, which are entertainingly examined in Hilke Kuhlmann's Living Walden Two. In the novel, behavioral engineers use positive reinforcement in organizing and "gently guiding" all aspects of society, leaving the rest of the citizens "free" to lead happy and carefree lives. Among the real-world communities, a recurrent problem in moving past the planning stages was the nearly ubiquitous desire among members to be gentle guides, coupled with strong resistance to being guided. In an insightful and often hilarious narrative, Hilke Kuhlmann explores the dynamics of the communities, with an in-depth examination of the two surviving Skinnerian communities: Comunidad Los Horcones in Mexico, and Twin Oaks in Virginia. Drawing on extensive interviews with the founders and key players in the Walden Two communities, Kuhlmann redefines the criteria for their success by focusing on the tension between utopian blueprints for a new society and communal experiments' actual effects on individual lives.

From the Back Cover: Twin Oaks, perhaps America's most famous and successful commune, was founded in rural Virginia in 1967 by Kathleen Kinkade and several other people, all of whom were influenced by B.F. Skinner's Walden Two. Eschewing primitivism for its own sake, embracing technology instead of rejecting it, these creators of Twin Oaks set out to build a community not only structured but also experimental in which the goal was the "good life". Kathleen Kinkade describes in great detail the story of the hard work put in by people who wanted to live together in as much harmony as possible.
