Designed for a one-semester course in the Psychology of Learning at the sophomore through senior level. Emphasizing research findings and basic concepts rather than theories, this book surveys the major areas in the psychology of learning from a consistent behavioral (e.g., B.F. Skinner) point of view. Learning 4E explores the continuities between human learning and the learning of other animals. The book organizes the phenomena of learning in a systematic way, moving from Behavior Without Learning (evolution) to Learning Without Words (basics in nonhuman behavior and learning) to Learning With Words (human learning and memory).
