Sloan Publishing and the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies are proud to announce the recent publication of the updated Fourth Edition of A. Charles Catania's classic LEARNING textbook. As in previous editions, this update presents a coherent treatment of both animal learning and human learning literatures while focusing on the research findings of cognition, ethology, foraging theory, higher-order classes of behavior, equivalence classes, biological constraints on learning, and social learning processes. The author uses experimental data to illuminate the relevance of basic principles to important human concepts, e.g., language, memory, self-awareness, freedom of choice, and self-control.
While containing all of the animal and human learning coverage of the 1998 Fourth Edition, this updated edition contains 40 pages of new material in special sections throughout the text, including tables that summarize Sources of Novel Behavior, The Vocabulary of Verbal Behavior, and Varieties of Memory.
