Focuses on three major questions about children's understanding of the causes of illness: (1) developmental trends in understanding causes of illness; (2) children's use of the notion of immanent justice to explain illness and accident; and (3) the relationship between the extent of knowledge about the physical causes of illness and the use of immanent justice explanations.
