Making Sense of Infant Categorization: Stable Processes and Changing Representations.
Madole, Kelly L.; Oakes, Lisa M.
Developmental Review, v19 n2 p263-96 Jun 1999
Demonstrates the need for a process-oriented, constructivist approach to understanding infants' categorization abilities. Suggests that emphasizing the distinction between perceptual and conceptual categorization has been an obstacle to forging an approach. Proposes a more microanalytic consideration of features available to infants at different developmental points and a process-oriented exploration of how these features are used in making categorization judgments.
