Abstract

The authors propose in this chapter to use abstract algebra to unify different models of theories of associative learning -- as complementary to current psychological, mathematical and computational models of associative learning phenomena and data. The idea is to compare recent research in associative learning to identify the symmetries of behaviour. This approach, a common practice in Physics and Biology, would help us understand the structure of conditioning as opposed to the study of specific linguistic (either natural or formal) expressions that are inherently incomplete and often contradictory.
