Theories of Learning documents the various learning theories which have been a hundred years in the making. This unique compilation of theories assembles each of the learning theories grouped together for your convenience. This impressive collection includes theorists of all generations including Werthheimer, Hull, Pavlov, Thorndike, Tolman, Guthrie, Bolles, Skinner, Lashley, Estes, Piaget, and Hebb. No one theory could definitively explain the process of learning. Yet the conjunction of each theorist´s learning theory can assemble a definitive classification of theory commonly known as theories of learning. Certain theories such as Hull´s are impressive in their complication in use of formulas, whereas other theories such as Piaget are impressive in their simplicity. As you will find by viewing the various theories of learning, it is quite impossible to agree on a single theory. 1. Language: English. Narrator: C. Scatena.

Sitting inside a class, one student finds it easy to absorb information while another struggles with it. While one learner may excel in a particular subject, another may do well in all the subjects. Trainees go through the same training to be graded differently according to the level of information they have absorbed and the understanding they show. Learning is a complex process. It takes years for a person to understand certain subjects and he still works his way out of life with limited information because it is difficult to imbibe the overwhelming amount of knowledge present in the world today. Depending on how information is absorbed, processed, and retained, a number of learning theories have been formulated which help us understand the process of learning in individuals. A number of factors decide the manner in which knowledge is acquired or information is processed by a person changing their views on certain subjects and forming new views about certain things. Learning is related with different parts of the brain which plays an important role in processing any information that we receive. Every individual processes the information differently based on their strengths and weaknesses. Educational psychology endeavors to gain an understanding about the different behaviors of an individual to a piece of information. This is used in analyzing the type of learning that can affect the individual the most. Different schools of thoughts are available for finding out how education and information is absorbed by a learner. This book aims at exploring the different learning theories that currently exist and understanding the roots of the theory and gaining an insight into the reasons why these theories exist. 1.

A novel of seduction and madness, hate and love, set in the world of Argentinean academia and animated by the spirits of Wittgenstein, Rousseau, Nabokov, and Bolano. A student at the Buenos Aires School of Philosophy attempts to put her life (academically and romantically) in the service of a professor whose nearly forgotten theories of violence she plans to popularize and radicalize - against his wishes. Meanwhile a young couple - a documentary filmmaker and a blogger - engage in a series of cerebral and sexual misadventures. In a novel crammed with philosophy, group sex, revolutionary politics, and a fighting fish named Yorick, Oloixarac leads her characters and the listener through dazzling and digressive intellectual byways to an Internet hack that confronts us with a catalog of historical violence, devastation, and atrocity throughout the centuries. Spellbinding, strange, groundbreaking, and already translated into several languages, Savage Theories is the debut of a major new voice on the world stage. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ana Grosse.

Each theory within these four classifications is attached to a theorist describing in depth the details to his or her theory. These theories of personality are 100 years in the making, and although the theories may conflict one another, each theory binds the four classifications into a single unit of personality theory. Learning about a theorist´s theory is to learn about the individual. These great minds would document their work for all to see for years to come.

We are living in an age of conspiracy theories, whether it´s enduring, widely held beliefs such as government involvement in the Kennedy assassination or alien activity at Roswell, fears of a powerful infiltrating group such as the Illuminati, Jews, Catholics, or communists, or modern fringe movements of varying popularity such as birtherism and trutherism. What is it in American culture that makes conspiracy theories proliferate? Who is targeted, and why? Are we in the heyday of the conspiracy theory, or is it in decline? Though there is significant scholarly literature on the topic in psychology, sociology, philosophy, and more, American Conspiracy Theories is the first to use broad, long-term empirical data to analyze this popular American tendency. Joseph E. Uscinski and Joseph M. Parent draw on three sources of original data: 120,000 letters to the editor of the New York Times and Chicago Tribune from between 1890 and 2010; a two-wave survey from before and after the 2012 presidential election; and discussions of conspiracy theories culled from Online news sources, blogs, and other Web sites, also from before and after the election. Through these sources, they are able to address crucial questions, such as similarities and differences in the nature of conspiracy theories over time, the role of the Internet and communications technologies in spreading modern conspiracy theories, and whether politics, economics, media, war, or other factors are most important in popularizing conspiratorial beliefs. Ultimately, they conclude that power asymmetries, both foreign and domestic, are the main drivers behind conspiracy theories, and that those at the bottom of power hierarchies have a strategic interest in blaming those at the top - in other words, ´´conspiracy theories are for losers.´´ But these ´´losers´´ can end up having tremendous influence on the course of history, and American Conspiracy Theories is an unpreceden... 1.

Humans are born to create theories about the world - unfortunately, they´re usually wrong, and keep us from understanding the world as it really is. Why do we catch colds? What causes seasons to change? And if you fire a bullet from a gun and drop one from your hand, which bullet hits the ground first? In a pinch, we almost always get these questions wrong. Worse, we regularly misconstrue fundamental qualities of the world around us. In Scienceblind, cognitive and developmental psychologist Andrew Shtulman shows that the root of our misconceptions lies in the theories about the world we develop as children. They´re not only wrong, they close our minds to ideas inconsistent with them, making us unable to learn science later in life. So how do we get the world right? We must dismantle our intuitive theories and rebuild our knowledge from its foundations. The reward won´t just be a truer picture of the world, but clearer solutions to many controversies - around vaccines, climate change, or evolution - that plague our politics today. 1.
