In his cognitive-social theory of personality, Bandura incorporated the concept of observational learning as one of the main theoretical points. He argued that reinforcement does not function simply as a mechanism, but is actually the information provider of the next reinforcement that will be provided once the behavior is repeated.

Social learning theory attempts to go beyond the behaviorist view of human behavior as a response to stimuli.
