Theory of Mind and Conceptual Change.
Wellman, Henry M.; Cross, David
Child Development, v72 n3 p702-07 May-Jun 2001
Maintains that authors' meta-analytic findings make early competence accounts of theory of mind increasingly unlikely. Asserts that findings argue against executive function expression accounts, including that advocated by Scholl and Leslie (PS532407). Explains that meta-analytic findings directly contradict Scholl and Leslie's predictions regarding the effects of particular task manipulations and a consistent timetable for theory-of-mind developments.
