Set representations required for the acquisition of the “natural number” concept

  • Justin Halberda (a1) and Lisa Feigenson (a1)
Abstract
Abstract

Rips et al. consider whether representations of individual objects or analog magnitudes are building blocks for the concept natural number. We argue for a third core capacity – the ability to bind representations of individuals into sets. However, even with this addition to the list of starting materials, we agree that a significant acquisition story is needed to capture natural number.
