Gopnik, Alison and Meltzoff Andrew (1997) Words, Thoughts and Theories.
	MIT Press, Cambridge.

This book articulates and defends the "theory theory" of cognitive
and semantic development, the idea that infants and young children, like

a view of the origins of knowledge and meaning that has broad
implications for cognitive science.
