On Static and Dynamic Intuitive Ontologies
Hammer, David; Gupta, Ayush; Redish, Edward F.
Journal of the Learning Sciences, v20 n1 p163-168 2011
The authors appreciate Professor Slotta's responding to their critique (Slotta, this issue). For their part, they believe that Professor Slotta has misinterpreted aspects of their position. In this commentary, the authors clarify two particular points. First, they explain their use of "static ontologies," which they maintain applies. Second, they respond to the question of how their dynamic view could account for evidence of stabilities. In addition, they take the opportunity to note differences in methodology that underlie much of this debate. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
