The Development of Children's Knowledge About the Appearance-Reality Distinction.
Flavell, John H.
American Psychologist, v41 n4 p418-25 Apr 1986
Summarizes recent research which attempted to discover what children of different ages know about the appearance-reality distinction and related phenomena. Findings show that what helps children grasp the distinction is an increased cognizance of the fact that people are sentient subjects who have mental representations of objects and events. (PS)
