Look ma, no fingers! Are children numerical solipsists?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (6):654-655 (2008)
I ask whether it is necessary that principles of number be mentally represented and point to the role of language in determining cultural variation. Some cultures possess extensive counting systems that are finite. I suggest that learning number principles is similar to learning conservation and, as such, might be derived from learning about the empirical properties of objects and other individuals in combinations
