Product Description

Review

"Take a tour through the latest and most amazing research in child psychology and come back with a better understanding of the strange things adults do. Bloom shows us how a first rate scientist integrates conflicting findings, broad scholarship and deep humanity to draw a nuanced and often surprising portrait of human nature, with all its beauty, horror and hope." (Jonathan Haidt, author of The Happiness Hypothesis)

"Just Babies is exactly the combination of penetrating insight, cutting-edge science, and elegant prose that readers have come to expect from one of psychology's best writers and sharpest minds." (Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness)

"In Just Babies, Paul Bloom provides a wonderful, in-depth look at how our morality develops from infancy onward, making the strong case for the subtle interplay of genes and environment in the way we turn out - a must for social science enthusiasts and parents." (Dan Ariely, author of Predictably Irrational)

"The Origins of Good and Evil is an ambitious subtitle, but this book earns it. Paul Bloom combines graceful, witty writing with intellectual rigour to produce a compelling account of how and why people are so wonderful and so horrible." (Robert Wright, author of The Moral Animal)

"Bloom, ever brisk and authoritative, generally focuses on how things are rather than on how developmental psychology might inform philosophy" (John Whitfield Nature) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Book Description

The distinguished Yale psychologist explores the origins of human morality and what the study of babies and toddlers can tell us about good and evil. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

A wonderfully written and engaging book on morality, and specifically morality in infants and babies. As a moral psychologist I have come across much of this work before, but Bloom strings it together in a ripping story interspersed with personal anecdotes and current affairs. Highly recommended.

Insightful exploration of the emergence of 'moral' behaviour in babies, enjoyable and exceedingly thought provoking particularly in light of the claims made by our religious folk who consider 'morality' to be a conferred virtue bestowed by their god !

A good read, eloquent and well worth the effort.

The book mainly describes a few studies on babies to try and understand the change in cognitive behaviour as babies develop. While the studies are quire interesting, I found that there was no overall conclusion or policy prescription that stems out of the book as well as no overall arching theme.
