The topic this week was concepts, which disappointingly just ended up being theories as to how people form categories and place items within categories. There were no definitive answers to this, and the chapter ended up concluding that different theories might be used for different purposes and at different times. Oh, and different people categorise things differently too. Only the one journal article, which was mercifully short and pretty much just presented evidence of how children are essentialists.
