This book is the study of psychological learning theories, with a twist. Kongor, a visitor from outer space, presented for earthlings in the First Edition an account of the present state of earth knowledge about learning. Now, in the third edition, Kongor's cousin Kro has updated, corrected, polished, and perfected the text with the help of his earthling host, Lefrancois. Essentially, the book is a survey and interpretation of several of the important theories and findings in the psychology of learning. It describes and evaluates behaviouristic and cognitive theories, looks at connectionism (neural net models), examines memory and motivation, and concludes with an overall summary and synthesis. The emphasis throughout is on clarity of presentation, relevance of topics and maintenance of high interest, hence the liberal use of practical illustrations and the occasional use of humour. Lefrancois (or Kro) takes students on a journey while they absorb and learn from the academic discussion.
