Abstract
Cognitive Social Learning theory (Bandura, 1986) tries to understand how the acquisition of knowledge, beliefs, attitudes, and ways of thinking of the person with respect to the social environment occurs. The premise underlying this theory is that learning is a cognitive process that cannot be separated from the context in which it occurs, be it family, school or of any other nature. Albert Bandura was a giant in the field, with work that influenced social, cognitive, developmental, educational, and clinical psychology. His death on July 21, 2021 left a void in the filed of psychology. He will definitely be greatly missed. This Research Topic has been developed to pay tribute to him, from the aforementioned disciplines.
