As humans, we often differentiate ourselves from other animals by our intelligence and ability to learn, but are these distinctions always so simple?

Covering theories of learning, influences on intelligence, animal intelligence and test performance, Lund discusses the fascinating debates that shape our understanding of this area.

Whatever your level of study, this balanced introduction will allow you to look critically at the main theories and cement your understanding of intelligence and learning.

"This is an important and authoritative text on learning and intelligence. Lund provides concise yet comprehensive coverage of both topics and the book is ideally suited to students studying psychology at A level, Scottish Higher or undergraduate levels". - Hilary Tait, Lecturer and Teaching Fellow in Psychology, Edinburgh Napier University
