This article looks at the history and scientific relatives of behavioral field systems as well as Sharpe and Hawkins's field systems analysis. Interbehavioral psychology is the result of the work of J. R. Kantor who believed that behavior must always be described in field terms. Our literatures that aid behavioral systems analysis include ethology, chronobiology and cybernetic control systems.
