Understanding Uncertainty with Abstract Conditional Premises.
Venet, Michele; Markovits, Henry
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v47 n1 p74-99 Jan 2001

Findings supported the idea that such reasoning may represent a qualitative change in reasoning abilities and that its development relies on appropriate access to empirical knowledge despite the abstract nature of premises.
