Why Children Don't Have To Solve the Frame Problems: Cognitive Representations Are Not Encodings.
Bickhard, Mark H.
Developmental Review, v21 n2 p224-62 Jun 2001
Asserts that developmental psychology's assumption that representation has nature of encoding is false; offers alternative model of representation based on the pragmatics of action. Argues that "frame problems" originate in the inherent requirement that encoding representations carry explicit content. Maintains that these problems impact theories constructed within an encodingist set of presuppositions. Alternative model has powerful consequences for development. (Author/KB)
