The generic account of selection proposed by Hull et al, readily fits operant learning where, by comparison with natural selection, die process is well understood but little is known about the mechanism. Objections within psychology that operant learning ignores internal processes, fail to recognise the general significance of behaviour-environment interactions. Variation within operant response classes requires further investigation.
