Editorial Reviews


Keil is arguably the most original thinker in the field of conceptual development.

(James Russell Times Higher Education Supplement)

The exposition of the empirical studies is admirably clear, and the findings themselves are significant. For linguists interested in concept development and concept representation, and also for philosophers of language who are interested in the causal theory of reference, this book is valuable.

(Paul Saka Language)

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Tanasije Gjorgoski on August 29, 2005
Format: Hardcover
As the title says, the book analyses the development of concepts in children. It starts with explanation of the classical theories of concepts, the reasons of their forming, and what they are lacking.

Starting from that, it goes carefully, without presuming anything, through a set of empirical studies done with young children (pre-school, and early school ages), tightening the ring arround the possible theories.

As a result, at the end the theory of theory based concepts seems to be best fitted.

Closing chapter made me eager to read following books of the author, where he is supposed to analyze what kind of early theories there are in children, if there is just few general , or more specific ones.

Very clearly and well written.
