Part1 The chimp was caged and the child was nurtured more so there are differences. Another criticism was that the chimp was older, 7 1/2 month and not just born.
In the first reference page 6 it's very interesting to note that two girls raised in the wild may have been totally retarded by the experience and not necessarily been actually deficient other than nurture, not nature.
Also search criticism etc. in the pdf file. Example. Speaking of creationists, "They were suspicious of the Kellogg experiments which they viewed as against nature."
Part 2 Seems like there is a lot on Cognitive Psychology and
