Situational Features Influencing Young Children's Mentalistic Explanations of Actions.
Montgomery, Derek E.
Cognitive Development, v9 n4 p425-54 Oct-Dec 1994
Two studies examined young children's ability to understand whether the actions of artifacts, insects, mammals, or humans were caused by mental or physical states. The studies suggest that children abstract specific features of action when construing its cause across disparate situations and actors. (MDM)
