Walden Two is a utopic novel novel by the behavioralist psychologist B. F. Skinner, who rejected the philosophical concept of free will. The novel describes a small rural community that lives simply in nature, similar to the way Henry David Thoreau described in his 1854 book Walden. The community lives with an experimental attitude towards life and its members constantly strive for self-improvement. The government is democratic and its leaders live as simply as all the other citizens.
