From the beginning of the study of classical conditioning, the formulation of mathematical theories has been a major goal of theoreticians. After more than a century of research, the amount of empirical data accumulated is impressive and the theories have become progressively more complex and sophisticated. Nowadays, there is such a diversity of models, each addressing only certain categories of phenomena and using somewhat different formalisms, that a critical analysis seems opportune. This article attempts to provide such an analysis for the Spanish speaking audience.
