Is Early Differentiation of Human Behavior a Precursor to the 1-Year-Old's Understanding of Intentional Action? Comment on Legerstee, Barna, and DiAdamo (2000).
Gergely, Gyorgy
Developmental Psychology, v37 n5 p579-82 Sep 2001
Suggests that the findings of Legerstee, Barna, and DiAdamo (2000) are most parsimoniously explained by associative learning and may not constitute a precursor to later understanding of intentionality. Argues for the importance of differentiating between associative and inferential processes and reviews evidence that the understanding of goal-directed action around 9 months of age involves principle-base inferences.
