Generalizing Through the Verbal Medium
Peel, E. A.
British Journal of Educational Psychology, 48 pt1, 36-46, Feb 78
When presented with abstract notions through the verbal media of books, newspapers, talks, TV and radio, people often produce quite erroneous generalizations. Describes a method of investigating such possible trends among young people and adults and reveals their extent in samples of graduates, undergraduates, adult education students and secondary students. Discusses implications for less sophisticated adults encountering ideas in verbal experience and discourse. (Editor/RK)
