Many researchers have suggested that the psychological complexity of a concept is related to the length of its representation in a language of thought.

This paper makes one such proposal: the language of thought allows first order quantification (quantification over objects) more readily than second-order quantification (quantification over features). To support this proposal we present behavioral results from a concept learning study inspired by the work of Shepard, Hovland and Jenkins." read more
