LFE-Forschungskolloquium mit Dr. Bahar Köymen (Manchester University)

29. Oktober 2019

Am Dienstag, den 29. Oktober 2019, findet im Rahmen des LFE-Forschungskolloquiums ein Vortrag von Dr. Bahar Köymen (Manchester University, Developmental Psychology) statt.

Die Veranstaltung trägt den Titel “ Children’s reasoning“

Recent accounts argue that “reasoning” – in the sense of explicating reasons for actions or conclusions – is a fundamentally social skill enabling two or more people to produce and evaluate one another’s arguments to reach joint decisions (Mercier & Sperber, 2011; Tomasello, 2019). In this talk I will present series of studies in which young children produce and evaluate reasons with peer partners to reach joint decisions. The findings suggest that children as young as 3-year-olds are able to reason with others (e.g., critique another person’s reasoning); they get better at reasoning in late preschool ages; and they eventually become very “strategic” reasoners at school ages. Overall, these results support the view of children’s joint reasoning as a fundamentally cooperative enterprise aimed at making joint rational decisions.
