Why Perceiving Produces Ontological Knowledge.
Reed, Edward S.
Human Development, v40 n4 p245-53 Jul-Aug 1997
Discusses Gopnik and Meltzoff's ascription of theories behind children's cognitive processes, consideration of phenomena that must be explained by a cognitive development theory, and belief that cognitive advances are tied to advances in language learning. In contrast to Gopnik and Meltzoff, concludes that the basis for understanding how humans develop knowledge of the world is perception not theorizing. (BC)
