First of all, as is done by many parents, it can be taught the child verbally ten to twenty, etc. But this only modifies the child’s comprehension very slightly; we are constantly coming across subjects of four to five years old who will deny the equality of two piles of objects, even though they have counted what is in each pile as being perhaps seven or ten, because the way the objects were arranged in space or subdivided into small groups was changed each time. In such cases, outside influences, such as counting out loud, only produce a slight deviation leading back to the “chreod” at the four- to five-year-old level, for lack of any means of assimilation at higher levels.

1983, pp. 833-40). Conceptually the problem of determination is parallel to that of the sensitive period as fixer of developmental fate. The behavioral notion of the sensitive period is in fact derived from the embryological one of critical period and tissue determination (Oyama, 1979). Detailed investigation in both cases reveals a phenomenon that is not absolute and definitive, but complex and relative, one that is much more consistent with the model of development being elaborated here than with any fixed program.
