|Abstract||3-; much of this book attests, a wealth of research provides evidence that human infants have a core capacity for representing objects and their zotions. The environment contains a diversity of objects, however, with varied properties and behaviors. Objects such as pebbles and blocks are inert; tev move or change only in response to an external force. Objects such as utterflies and cars have internal mechanisms generating forces that can propel them. Self-propelled objects can be further differentiated, according to ine nature and characteristic pattern of their motions and the circumstances fiat evoke them. To navigate successfully in this diverse and changing envitonment, perceivers and actors must categorize the objects around them appropriately, determining what kind of thing each object is and how it is Llcely to behave.|
