INTRODUCTION AND SUMMARY An enduring insight of behavioural science is that most actual behaviour is a function of habit. This was the basis for the enduring popularity of S-R psychology, despite the many empirical inadequacies that ultimately lead to its downfall in the “cognitive revolution.�? Connectionism appears to be rehabilitating the image of associationistic models of behaviour, by increasing the adequacy of associationistic models to account for structural phenomena invoked by cognitive psychologists as the basis for rejecting S-R psychology.
