This presentation will combine two approaches to understanding young children’s conceptions of normativity. Firstly, a theoretical argument integrating a large body of literature (including the well-established protest paradigm) will be advanced, suggesting that the earliest conceptions of what is right (normative) is not well-differentiated from what is intended. For philosophers, an almost insurmountable challenge has been to explain how what should be can be inferred from what is. For psychologists, the challenge is instead to explain why humans in fact routinely make that inference.
