Origins of Theory of Mind, Cognition and Communication.
Meltzoff, Andrew N.
Journal of Communication Disorders, v32 n4 p251-69 Jul-Aug 1999
Examines three alternatives to the classical framework of early cognitive development: modularity-nativism, connectionism, and theory-theory. Arguments are marshaled to support the "theory-theory" view, which emphasizes a combination of innate structure and qualitative reorganization in children's thought based on input from the people and things in their culture.
