Cognitive Processes and Theory Development: A Reply to Spencer and Karmiloff-Smith.
Gellatly, Angus
Human Development, v40 n1 p55-58 Jan-Feb 1997
Focuses on the role of enculturation in children's cognitive development by distinguishing between, and elaborating upon, three factors: (1) cultural context; (2) cognitive contents; and (3) cognitive processes. Suggests problems inherent in positing homologies between children's cognitive development and the historical development of scientific theories. (BC)
