The Object Permanence Fallacy.
Greenberg, Daniel E.
Human Development, v39 n3 p117-31 May-Jun 1996
Developmentalists have overlooked the problem of the real impermanence of things. Though the metaphor of impermanence is central to Piagetian and neo-nativist accounts of representation, the development of the understanding of impermanence is unstudied. This article proposes that the development of the concept of impermanence is distinct from the development of concepts of conservation and reversibility. (Author/BC)
