5.0 out of 5 stars Babies are Awesome
Have you ever wondered what is going on in the head of a (your) baby or toddler?
This book will answer your question: A lot!, even statistics!
Though citing a lot of experiments and scientific work it is an easy read and entertaining.
A lot of the research is quite new, so it might also be a good way to update your knowledge.
If you are familiar with...

If you are familiar with the prisoner experiment: Here you can also read how
toddlers would act in this experiment! We definitively could learn from them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, thought-provoking and insightful, 29 Jan. 2010

This review is from: The Philosophical Baby: What Children's Minds Tell Us about Truth, Love & the Meaning of Life (Paperback)
The classical view of babies' minds was that they didn't really think much and they weren't very interesting. But that's not the experience of any parent. This book suggests that in fact, babyhood is the most interesting and challenging time, when intrinsic understanding and implicit beliefs about the world are formed that shape the adult to come. It's not easy to prove these beliefs and understanding in pre-verbal children, but this book summarises the fascinating and revealing work that has been done to elucidate them. Play is the work of the child; through play they can experiment with objects and with roles and develop their own philosophy of life.

This review is from: The Philosophical Baby: What Children's Minds Tell Us about Truth, Love & the Meaning of Life (Paperback)
This is such an awesome book for anyone who is learning about Early Childhood development for any reason. It brings together all the main scientific findings of recent years into one volume and nicely integrates them into one body of knowledge, tying together with philosophy, educational theory and other disciplines. Also a very enjoyable read, at times quite humorous.

Fabulous! A unique perspective on how babies and children think, and why studying them is so important to understanding our own psychology

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 17 May 2014

This review is from: The Philosophical Baby: What Children's Minds Tell Us about Truth, Love & the Meaning of Life (Paperback)
A really good insight into the latest baby research and the brain of our little ones.

My only complaint would be that the author seems incapable of impartiality. She keeps pushing an anti-Bush agenda, which is not only uninteresting to the non-American reader, and incredibly dated, no, it also makes me take her research with a grain of salt, as I feel a scientist writing a science book without realising that her political views don't belong here cannot possibly overcome her own confirmation bias.

Still, interesting read.
