Behavior theory and conditioning by Kenneth W Spence( Book )

42 editions published between 1956 and 1982 in English and Japanese and held by 1,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents empirical data from a number of simple conditioning situations and a theoretical structure or schema that has as its primary purpose the integration (derivation) of these data. The book attempts to show how the theory, developed on the basis of these simple conditioning experiments, may be extended to more complex types of behavior phenomena such as selective and paired-associate learning. In addition to these empirical and theoretical objectives emphasis has been placed on the discussion of some of the problems and issues that arise in connection with such theoretical formulations.

Behavior theory and learning, selected papers by Kenneth W Spence( Book )

29 editions published between 1960 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The following collection of papers, while mostly theoretical in nature, includes a number of experimental articles that have served as vehicles for elaborating the behavior theory approach of the writer. Consisting of twenty previously published articles and two new papers, the volume offers a kind of behavior or activity sample of a psychologist who has not only been concerned with attempting to bring the kind of order into psychological phenomena that theories provide, but has also had an abiding interest in the nature and role of theory per se in this scientific endeavor. This latter interest is reflected especially in the papers that have been grouped into Part I of the book. Primarily concerned with philosophical and methodological problems of psychology, i.e., its philosophy of science, these articles discuss both empirical questions relating to the requirements that scientific concepts must fulfill in order to be both testable and significant and the nature and role of theoretical structures in providing for scientific explanation in psychology. Part II contains a heterogeneous collection of papers concerned both with the basic theoretical structure of learning phenomena developed by the author from simple conditioning studies and with extrapolations of this theory to more complex types of behavior such as are involved in simple T-maze, complex serial mazes, and paired associates learning in humans. In Part III of the volume, three early theoretical articles on discrimination learning, the phenomenon of transposition, and the continuity-noncontinuity issue are followed by representative empirical studies concerned with testing of the theoretical schema
