Abstract:

In this paper, I develop a novel account of concept acquisition for an atomistic theory of concepts. Conceptual atomism is rarely explored in cognitive science because of the feeling that atomistic treatments of concepts are inherently nativistic.

My model illustrates, on the contrary, that atomism does not preclude the learning of a concept.
