About this item
After introducing learning theory and its basic findings and concepts within a functional framework, Bouton explains the intellectual developments in the field. He covers what learning theory is and how it got that way, learning and adaptation, the nuts and bolts of classical conditioning, theories of conditioning, whatever happened to behavior anyway, whether the laws of conditioning are general, behavior and its consequences, how stimuli guide instrumental action, the motivation of instrumental action, and a synthetic perspective on instrumental action. The material is for students and practitioners in psychology and behavioral sciences. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
