Walden Two (1948) is a utopian novel by behavioral psychologist B. F. Skinner, describing a thousand-person, rural planned community of happy, productive, and creative people. In the novel's 1976 preface, the author explained his dissatisfaction with American life and that Walden Two is an illustration that our knowledge of human behavior could be used to create a better social environment.
