Now we know that continents do move, and have moved. Now Wegener’s teachings are basic; geologists are crossing its t’s, dotting its i’s, and extending its implications.
So it will be for Robert Kantor. How long before his interbehavioral framework will be understood and utilized we cannot foresee. The thicket of theories, the labyrinth of laboratories, the congelation of concepts are far denser, twisted, and firmly frozen among those who term themselves psychologists.
But Kantor was patient and, undiscouraged to the end, he continued brilliantly to hack his way through, to lay the thread, to melt the ice. And so must we be patient, continuously teaching, demonstrating, elucidating, extending.
Kantor’s unquestionable preeminence among 20th Century psychologists is clear to those who read this. It will be clear to all psychologists in a generation or so.
