Really? Was everyone wrong?
This seemed not a critique of learning theory as much as a criticism of each person in history. I was waiting to hear his alternative view, and that didn't come.
Not sure what the point of this presentation was, and that's surprising, I think, when it's supposed to be about learning!
I praised large numbers of modern theorists in this talk and many others, especially in experimental psychology. It is the nature of a subject that many of the older theories are supplanted by the newer ones. So your statement that 'eveyone was wrong' is simply... well wrong.
