Reconceptualizing the Transitive Inference Ability: A Framework for Existing and Future Research.
Wright, Barlow C.
Developmental Review, v21 n4 p375-422 Dec 2001
Suggests an account of transitivity and transitive inferential reasoning differing from classic Piagetian and current information processing accounts. Postulates a three-component psychological system, with components relying on perceptual, linguistic, and conceptual subprocesses and sensitivity to simple cues. Maintains that the framework is testable and accommodates important aspects of classic and modern accounts as well as human and nonhuman research. (Author/KB)
