Children's Understanding of Logical Inconsistency.
Ruffman, Ted
Child Development, v70 n4 p872-86 Jul-Aug 1999
Five experiments examined children's understanding of logical consistency. Findings indicated that only by 6 years of age were logically inconsistent claims understood despite good memory for claims, varying question forms, ability to identity other types of statements as not sensical or to compare/contrast claims in other ways, and attempts made to deepen processing of claims. Number of older siblings related to performance. (Author/KB)
