Are Artworks More Like People Than Artifacts? Individual Concepts and Their Extensions

This research examines people’s reasoning about identity continuity and its relation to how people value one-of-a-kind artifacts, such as artwork. We find that the mere categorization of an object as ‘art’ versus ‘a tool’ changes people’s intuitions about the persistence of those objects over time,and explore possible mechanisms.
