Abstract:Microgenetic analyses of five cases addressed eight empirical issues that should be addressed by any theory of knowledge acquisition: (a) the nature of the overall knowledge change, (b) the progression of intermediate states during knowledge change, (c) initiators of knowledge change, (d) interactions of prior background knowledge and prior domain knowledge during knowledge changes, (e) the fate of old and new knowledge, (f) the relationship between belief and knowledge, (g) changes in meta-awareness, and (h) factors that influenced the course of knowledge change.
