"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.
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.See all Product Description
