(p.213) Chapter 5 Learning and Learning to Learn
Inside Man
Stanford University Press

This chapter, which examines the modeling of human learning, proposes a particular model of learning and shows that it can accommodate basic insights and intuitions about learning. It considers some basic choices in modeling deterministic behaviorism, inductivism, and fallibilism. The chapter also discusses the capability of the proposed model to salvage both the “betting odds” interpretation of personal degrees of belief and the fallibilist approach that undergirds inference from the known to the unknown.

Keywords:   modeling, human learning, intuitions, deterministic behaviorism, inductivism, fallibilism
