5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and engaging
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Skims over the surface of something large but fails to properly develop it.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thought Provoking, 31 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Just Babies: The Origins of Good and Evil (Hardcover)
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars interesting but does not quite reach a high, 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is interesting in a psychological pottering kind of way, but is more a collection of lose reflections and rather vague observations of for instance how long a baby looks at things. Hmmm. Bloom's ideas may or may as well not prove anything about the good and evil in babies. The title is an overstatement!
