Raver, C. Cybele; Leadbeater, Bonnie J.
Human Development, v36 n6 p350-62 Nov-Dec 1993

This divergence reflects differences in methodology of the two models and in researchers' framing of the problem of understanding others' mental states. Argues that children's understandings of others' inner experiences are distinct from their abstract conceptions of mind. (BC)
