Abstract

In the following paper, the term "stimulus generalization" will appear many times. As a matter of convenience it will be abbreviated to "SG".

The best type of definition to give for SG is an operational one. Although the operational definition loses its generality, it gains by providing at least one concrete illustration of the phenomenon with which this paper deals. The following illustration is taken from the experimental literature in most part, and it is the type of illustration that is recognized both by those for and those against SG as demonstrating the phenomenon of SG...Despite the great amount of evidence in its favor, SG is still not universally accepted.
