This chapter describes significant developments in the field of conditioning and associative learning over the last forty or so years (e.g., the emergence of cognitive views, potential associative structures, and the role of contextual factors) to clarify some issues that may confuse psychologists and other researchers or practitioners. Along the way, the chapter illustrates some important and, in most cases, ongoing findings that explore the processes underlying associative learning and conditioning. The intention is to help with the better appreciation of the more detailed, application-focused chapters that follow in this volume.

Keywords:   Pavlovian, instrumental, contingencies, representation, associative structure, context, cognitive perspective
