Discovering the Affordances of Surfaces of Support.
Gibson, Eleanor J.
Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development, v62 n3 p159-62 1997
Discusses contributions of Adolph's study to behavioral knowledge; it is an important study of the early development of a universal basic pattern of human behavior, illuminating how humans perceive the possibilities for action and learn to use them when appropriate opportunities are offered. Notes that the study addresses generalization of newly learned affordances and is technically innovative and ingenious. (KB)
