Ullin Place's contributions to the literature of behaviour analysis and behaviourism span the period from 1954 to 1999. In appreciation of his scholarship and breadth of vision, this paper reviews an early widely-cited contribution (''Is consciousness a brain process?'' British Journal of Psychology), 1956, pp. 47-53) and a late one which should become widely cited (''Rescuing the science of human behavior from the ashes of socialism,'' Psychological Record, 1997, pp. 649-659). It is noted that the sweep of Place's work links behaviour analysis to its philosophical roots in the work of Ryle and Wittgenstein and also looks forward to the further functional analysis of language-using behaviour.
