Learning in and about opaque worlds
Tatone, D. and Csibra, Gergely (2015) Learning in and about opaque worlds. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 38 , e68. ISSN 0140-525X.
We argue that direct active teaching in humans exhibits at least two properties (open-endedness and content opacity) that make the recognition of teaching episodes without ostension untenable. Thus, while we welcome Kline's functional approach to the analysis of teaching, we think that she ignores important features of the socio-environmental niche in which human teaching likely evolved.
