My wipers on my 97 Acura RL seem to have a mind of it own

My wipers on my 97 Acura RL seem to have a mind of its own. It will turn on randomly while driving. I can turn up the speed and slow the wipers down but can't get them to stop. It usually will take a bout a minute and will stop on its own or after turning the switch multiple times. Please help
