Kuhn (2001) proposes that a multiplist conception of knowledge is most likely to emerge during adolescence, but an evaluativist conception develops gradually, over a period of years, and so may be achieved later. The studies reported by Perry (1970), Kitchener and King (1981), and Kuhn et al. (1988) indicate that rationalist thought develops primarily during adulthood. Substantial individual differences were reported in all three studies, and the most advanced levels of epistemological thought may be relatively infrequent.
