This tends to confuse both investigators and reviewers of imitation. To add to the confusion, competing theories have now been advanced for imitation based on classical conditioning, operant conditioning, sensory feedback, stimulus contiguity, and catharsis, each of which has generated somewhat independent literatures (Bandura, 1965; Parton, 1976). Moreover, studies of imitation have concerned not only aggression, but also altruism (Berkowitz, 1972; Krebs, 1970; Macauley & Berkowitz, 1970), alcohol use (Alexander & Campbell, 1962; Biddle, Bank, & Marlin, in press a,b; Forslund & Gustafson, 1970), drug use (Jensen, 1972;Kandel, 1974), school achievement (Kandel & Lesser, 1972), therapy with adults (Rosenthal, 1976) and children (Kirkland & Thelen, 1977), and other content fields.

Research stimulated by these theories appears under several terms, equity, social exchange, distributive justice—mà good summaries of the effort may be found in Berkowitz and Walster (1976) and Walster, Berscheid, and Walster (1973).

There are at least three difficulties with the concept of reinforcement. First, many persons are confused about the relationships between reward and reinforcement. These confusions are abetted by the use of such terms as "primary reinforcement" or "positive control" as synonyms for the use of reward. As can be seen, the concepts of reward and positive reinforcement are independently defined. Both are legitimate, but findings for one should not be confused with findings for the other. ") Second, it seems less useful to describe the behavior of human beings in stimulus and response terms than it is to describe the behavior of lower animals in this way— not only because human behavior is more complex, but also because of the more complex internal processes presumably taking place within the person.
