This Reply takes issue with two points in Webster's
(1994) extrapolation of corporeal representation to the realm of
concept formation in highly disadvantaged infants: his argument
from the pathological to the normal and his claim that cognition is
socially constructed. A normal infant's everyday
tactile-kinesthetic experience is both cognitively rich in and of
itself and other-independent, that is, a personal affair.
