This paper presents a first attempt at explaining the relationship between the psychological and artificial intelligence points of view of learning with a special focus on social learning. A two dimensional classification methodology is proposed that classifies learning behaviors in intelligent agents on the basis of agent structure and of information acquisition modes. We make a fundamental distinction between active and passive modes of learning, depending on the agent's ability to affect the information source. A preliminary classification of learning behaviors in this scheme is presented and areas of future work are identified
