Inhaltsangabe: This is a brilliant new book about the origins of thinking. In it, Peter Hobson, a Professor of Developmental Psychopathology at the Tavistock Clinic and the University of London, examines how thought develops in infants, on the subsequent differences in the quality of thinking between individuals and what this suggests about the place of thought in the history of evolution. At its heart is a radical new theory which tackles head-on the ideas of people like Stephen Pinker.Hobson firmly refutes the notion that thinking is turned on by biologically pre-determined 'modules' in the brain, but that it arises from the nature and quality of the relationship between parent and child in the first eighteen months of life. Drawing on twenty years of clinical experience, on case histories and experimental and clinical research, this will be a controversial book not only in scientific circles, but also in its contribution to the wider parenting, IQ and nature/nurture debates. Accessible, authoritative and extremely readable, this is a major work of popular science.
Über den Autor: As well as being Professor of Developmental Psychopathology at the Tavistock Clinic and the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Sciences at UCL, Peter Hobson works as a psychotherapist with adults and is the Director of the Unit for the Study of Lifespan Development. This is his first trade book.
