Intention, History, and Artifact Concepts.
Bloom, Paul
Cognition, v60 n1 p1-29 Jul 1996
Claims that people determine whether something is a member of a given artifact kind by inferring that it was successfully created with the intention that it belong to that kind. Discusses function-based and intentional-historical accounts of artifact concepts. Concludes that a rich set of inferential capacities is needed to constitute a theory of concepts. (MOK)
