Sample text

A conceptless organism is a thoughtless one. But are there processes related to thought the infant could do? For instance, could the sensorimotor infant make inductive generalizations? I think so, because a simple form of inductive inference consists of   The Foundations of Mind generalizing to “similar” stimuli, which is a general organismic capacity. However, to do inductive generalization without a conceptual system would mean that the infant would be dependent for such generalizations solely on its perceptual system; it could generalize from one stimulus to another only if they were perceptually similar.

This is why he referred to the phenomenon as motor recognition, not as a symbol capable of mediating recall. I have previously related this phenomenon to the beginning of signs, or signlike actions, in young native American Sign Language (ASL) speakers (Mandler, ). There have been a number of reports in the literature on deaf children learning sign language, indicating that they produce their first signs earlier than hearing children speak words: as early as  months and on average about  months.

But if we do make note of it, we often make the same assumption that Piaget did. Infants aren’t brain damaged, and so if they fail to pick up a desired object in front of them that they watched you cover, or if they fail to retrieve a desired object when it is sitting on top of another, it must be because they are still missing some fundamental conceptual understanding about objects and their permanence. In Piaget’s theory of the infant mind, it takes some months before infants know anything much about objects, such as that they are three-dimensional, solid, and unitary.
