The contemporary behavioral sciences are disunified and could not easily become unified, as they operate with incompatible explanatorymodels.

I defend the ordinary behavioral scientist’s lack of commitment to a unifying explanatory model and identify several reasons why the behavioral sciences should remain disunified for the foreseeable future.
