Reply to Ahn et al.

Published: Cognition 82, 71–76, 2001

Abstract: This paper is a reply to a discussion of my paper The Essentialist Aspect of Naive Theories by Ahn, Kalish, Gelman, Medin, Luhmann, Atran, Coley and Shafto; both the discussion and my reply appeared in the November 2001 issue of Cognition.

I have included on this page a link to some supplementary comments of mine on Ahn et al.'s commentary. These comments were omitted, for reasons of length, from the published version.
