Not all basic number representations are analog: Place coding as a precursor of the natural number system

  • Wim Fias (a1) and Tom Verguts (a1)

Rips et al.'s arguments for rejecting basic number representations as a precursor of the natural number system are exclusively based on analog number coding. We argue that these arguments do not apply to place coding, a type of basic number representation that is not considered by Rips et al.
