This chapter discusses the activities, cognitive development, and learning progress of Ricky when he was between 19–20 months old. At this stage, Ricky's knowledge was piecemeal because while it was not totally organized, it was neither completely simple nor concrete. He was able to operative on various levels of complexity and abstractness with minimal knowledge. However, he still lacked the intricate web of integrated knowledge required for context-appropriate, mature behaviour.

Keywords: minimal knowledge; integrated knowledge; abstractness; complexity; mature behaviour
