Abstract  Young infants’ intuitive knowledge about physical support relations between objects enables them to infer whether and when an object resting on a solid platform will remain stable, and constitutes an important part of their naïve physics. Previous experiments have adopted two primary methods, and have focused on how intuitive physical knowledge related to support relations develops, exploring the thesis that various common sense knowledge of physical objects develops around an initial set of core concepts. However more research work is needed since paradigms in the area are unitary and researches fail to provide support or validation to each other.
Keywords support      intuitive physical knowledge      naive theory
