pre-conceptual judgementsvorbegriffliche Urteile (ger.)

  • preconceptual: Occurring or existing before development of the ability to conceptualize. (OED 2011)

    By pre-conceptual judgments I will understand those acts of virtual or rudimentary judgment which are performed by children subsequent to the “practical inferences” which they share with brutes, but prior to the advent of self-conscious reflection. These pre-conceptual judgments may be expressed either by gestures, connotative classifications, or by both combined.
