Resumen

LOPEZ ASTORGA, Miguel. Methodological problems in research on intellectual abilities on the autism spectrum: the case of conditional perfection. Alpha [online]. 2012, n.34, pp.117-132. ISSN 0718-2201.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22012012000100008.

Recently, many papers have been presented in the area of cognitive science and psychology in order to analyze modes of reasoning and intellectual abilities in individuals diagnosed as autistic. Such is the case of a research by McKenzie, Evans and Handly. In this paper, I review that research and argue that contains methodological problems. So, I try to show what these problems and hold that future experiments in the same way and with the same objective should be another structure. I focus equally on the concept of neurodiversity to support my approach and hold the outcomes presented by Mckenzie, Evans and Handly can be interpreted in different ways and according to various theoretical approaches.

Palabras clave : Autism; cognitive science; intellectual abilities; neurodiversity; reasoning.
