Présentation de l'éditeur :

For most of us, having a baby is the most profound, intense, and fascinating experience of our lives. Now scientists and philosophers are starting to appreciate babies, too.

The last decade has witnessed a revolution in our understanding of infants and young children. Scientists used to believe that babies were irrational, and that their thinking and experience were limited. Recently, they have discovered that babies learn more, create more, care more, and experience more than we could ever have imagined. And there is good reason to believe that babies are actually cleverer, more thoughtful, and even more conscious than adults.

This new science holds answers to some of the deepest and oldest questions about what it means to be human. A new baby's captivated gaze at her mother's face lays the foundations for love and morality. A toddler's unstoppable explorations of his playpen hold the key to scientific discovery. A three-year-old's wild make-believe explains how we can imagine the future, write novels, and invent new technologies.

Alison Gopnik - a leading psychologist and philosopher, as well as a mother - explains the groundbreaking new psychological, neuroscientific, and philosophical developments in our understanding of very young children, transforming our understanding of how babies see the world, and in turn promoting a deeper appreciation for the role of parents.

Quatrième de couverture :

Praise for How Babies Think

'Read this book for its rich description of what babies start with, how different it is from where they end up, and some of the steps in between' Times Literary Supplement

'This is a terrific book - a page-turner. I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. It is a treasure trove of cutting-edge science combined with beautiful writing, warmth, humour, and illuminating anecdotes'
Michael B. Rothenberg, M.D., co-author, 5th and 6th Editions, Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care

'This book is required reading for anyone interested in how children come to understand the world around them, as well as what makes all of us, through our ability to learn, so characteristically human'
Frank J. Sulloway, Ph.D., Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, MIT, author of Born to Rebel: Birth Order, Family Dynamics, and Creative Lives

'This book is a gem, a really beautiful combination of scholarship, good sense, and farsightedness, all nourished by a humane appreciation of what it's like to be human in a complicated and changing world' Jerome S. Bruner, Ph.D., New York University, author of Actual Minds, Possible Worlds
