Harry F. Harlow, a comparative psychologist, is well known with his discovery of the learning-set phenomena. The learning set or learning how to learn was of crucial importance to the animal research in the San Diego Zoo, the formulation of emergent behaviors, and study of primate intelligence. This chapter examines the learning set from the perspective of the bridge afforded between radical behaviorism and rational behaviorism.

Keywords:   Harry F. Harlow, learning set, animal research, San Diego Zoo, emergent behaviors, primate intelligence, radical behaviorism, rational behaviorism
