Deciding between Theories of How Reasoning Develops Is Hard
Feeney, Aidan; Wilburn, Catherine
Cognition, v108 n2 p507-511 Aug 2008
Although Sloutsky agrees with our interpretation of our data, he argues that the totality of the evidence supports his claim that children make inductive generalisations on the basis of similarity. Here we take issue with his characterisation of the alternative hypotheses in his informal analysis of the data, and suggest that a thorough Bayesian analysis, although practically very difficult, is likely to result in a more finely balanced outcome than he suggests.
