It becomes clear that those analysts who dispute Melanie Klein's findings most
vehemently themselves still stand in the main by Freud's original formulations
which were never fully retraced or abandoned; and that where Freud later broke
new ground and went ahead sometimes in more intuitive recognition, they have
never followed. [p. 8] Klein started her analytical work by evolving a technique of
psychoanalyzing children, and this illustrates how different she was from other
pioneers ...

The Child's Material/Immaterial Distinction We have four interrelated questions.
Do young children draw a material/ immaterial distinction? If yes, what is the
essence of this distinction? And finally, do they conceptualize “amount of matter?”
If so, what is its measure? Estes et al. (1989) claimed that preschool children
know that mental entities are immaterial; Piaget (1960) claimed that, until age 8
or so, children consider shadows to be substantial, a claim that was endorsed by
DeVries ...

As can be seen in Table 20.2, only one child in the whole sample had an adult
pattern of judgments. Three groups of entities are reflected in the sorts: (solids,
liquids and powders on the one hand, and echo, shadow, wish and dream on the
other, with all others firmly in between). For children under 12, electricity, heat,
and light are equally or more often judged material than are dissolved sugar,
steam, smoke, and air (Table 20.1). Further, all children under 12 judged some
immaterial ...

When and How Children Draw the Material/Immaterial Distinction The problem
we face is ubiquitous in studies of conceptual development Many properties
children represent will distinguish some material entities from some immaterial
ones. Before we credit the child with a material/immaterial distinction, we must
assess more fully whether there is any concept with enough overlap of extension
and conceptual role with the adult concept matter to credit children with that
theoryladen ...

While the characterization of the child as believing air to be immaterial is easy
enough to write down, a moment's reflection reveals it to be bizarre. If air is not
material, what is it? Perhaps children consider air to be an immaterial physical
entity, like a shadow or an echo. But several children said outright, "Air is nothing;
air isn't anything." However, "air" is not simply synonymous with "nothing" or "
empty space," for children as young as six know that there is no air on the moon
or in outer ...

Four-year-old children treat both objects and nonsolid substances as subject to
the continuity principle: They judge that it is impossible for water to fill a box if the
box is already filled by a steel block of the same dimensions (Carey, 1991).
Moreover, 3- and 4-year-olds distinguish objects from ideas, dreams, and images
on the basis of two properties that are relevant to the distinction between material
and immaterial entities: objective perceptual access and causal interaction with
other ...

Schama writes that 'In the moralist's canon, the polluters came in two guises:
internal and external . . . But in some ways it was the threats from within that were
more insidious, precisely for seeming so innocuous.'43 Sarti refers to 'the
tendency to superimpose the concept of “family” on to that of “house”'.44 But the
contemporary meaning of the term 'family' – parents and children – is
comparatively recent, as is its association with the home. Originally 'familia' in
Latin referred to servants ...

Children can predict where the shadows will be projected, but they think that their
shadows continue to exist even if they're covered up by the experiment leader's
shadow, or even in the dark (light serves only to reveal a shadow that was
already present in the dark). The transitory nature of shadows is grasped only at
the fourth level, the level that completes the assimilation of childish shadow
concepts to adult concepts. Immaterial Material But not everyone agrees on how
children think ...

Small Scale Scenarios In advancing the subject of children and childhood in the
past on the academic scene, the direct and indirect evidences of children have
been clearly understood to be first and second priorities of study. In the child-
centred approach, these are the scientific evidences of children as subjects, and
their bodily features or skeletal remains as objects, of investigation. Then what
follows next are the evidences of the material and immaterial worlds of children's
own ...

Intermingling sounds like a physical process. With his radically disparate
conceptions of body and mind, Descartes created a problem. He separated mind
and body so thoroughly that it seems impossible to understand how they come
together in a human person. Descartes' friend and correspondent, the Princess
Elizabeth of Bohemia (1618 - 1680), asked him how the soul can affect the body
when it determines voluntary actions. Being immaterial, the soul cannot move. It
cannot push ...
