Four Types of Learning--A Phenomenological Analysis.
This is the author's personal document in which he tries to simply see what learning is about. He draws heavily on Fritz Heider for his phenomenological analysis, by which he means an analysis of learning based solidly and integrally on what can be simply seen by all men. The paper distinguishes a learning process found in the developing child, called maturational learning, which is not found in the adult. In addition, it considers three learning processes common to children and adults: (1) learning to do things; (2) acquiring knowledge; and (3) learning to go along with people or in groups. The author concludes that, of the different learning processes which he discusses, social learning is by far the least clear perceptually, and the most mysterious conceptually. (TL)
