What kinds of representations and cognitive mechanisms enable cumulative culture?
Languages of publication
The objective of the article is to explore representations and cognitive mechanisms that provide a basis for cumulative cultural learning. The paper examines research of imitation and natural pedagogy with focus on the role of decoupled representations and ostensive signals in the transmission of cognitively opaque cultural knowledge. The article aims to show that the theory of meta representations provides a useful explanatory framework for the explanation of emergence and development of abilities that enable acquisition of cultural practices and generic knowledge. The paper suggests that the application of the framework can contribute to the analysis of processes involved in interactions that facilitate early cultural learning.
