Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(4), 289–291. Reviews the book, Social Learning Theory by Albert Bandura (see record 1979-05015-000). There are six chapters in this tidy volume. In the opening chapter, the dragons of drive and psychodynamics are slain again and the main outlines of a social learning theory are presented, including emphasis on cognitive factors, self-regulation, and a balanced view of influence which recognizes both internal, or personal, as well as environment factors. In summary, this is a useful and clearly presented little volume. Social and clinical psychologists will find much of interest; developmentalists will be less stimulated by this volume.
