Hoist by their own petard: The constraints of hierarchical models

  • B. Vereijken (a1) and H. T. A. Whiting (a1)
Abstract

In the context of the motor skill literature on observational learning and hierarchical skill structuring, Byrne & Russon's findings call into question their standpoint that great apes imitate the behaviour of role models at the programme level. The authors impose a hierarchical model on their observations without properly considering alternative explanations. One such possibility, which stems from a constraints perspective that they dismiss, is put forward.
