Descripción BROADWAY BOOKS, United States, 2014. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. 201 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A leading cognitive scientist argues that a deep sense of good and evil is bred in the bone. From John Locke to Sigmund Freud, philosophers and psychologists have long believed that we begin life as blank moral slates.Many of us take for granted that babies are born selfish and that it is the role of society and especially parents to transform them from little sociopathsinto civilized beings. In Just Babies, Paul Bloom argues that humans are in fact hardwired with a sense of morality. Drawing on groundbreaking research at Yale, Bloom demonstrates that, even before they can speak or walk, babies judge the goodness and badness of others actions; feel empathy and compassion; act to soothe those in distress; and have a rudimentary sense of justice. Still, this innate morality is limited, sometimes tragically. We are naturally hostile to strangers, prone to parochialism and bigotry. Bringing together insights from psychology, behavioral economics, evolutionary biology, and philosophy, Bloom explores how we have come to surpass these limitations. Along the way, he examines the morality of chimpanzees, violent psychopaths, religious extremists, and Ivy League professors, and explores our often puzzling moral feelings about sex, politics, religion, and race. In his analysis of the morality of children and adults, Bloom rejects the fashionable view that our moral decisions are driven mainly by gut feelings and unconscious biases. Just as reason has driven our great scientific discoveries, he argues, it is reason and deliberation that makes possible our moral discoveries, such as the wrongness of slavery. Ultimately, it is through our imagination, our compassion, and our uniquely human capacity for rational thought that we can transcend the primitive sense of morality we were born with, becoming more than just babies. Paul Bloom has a gift for bringing abstract ideas to life, moving seamlessly from Darwin, Herodotus, and Adam Smith to The Princess Bride, Hannibal Lecter, and Louis C.K. Vivid, witty, and intellectually probing, Just Babies offers a radical new perspective on our moral lives. From the Hardcover edition. Nº de ref. de la librería ABZ9780307886859

Descripción Broadway Books, 2014. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: A New York Times Book Review Editor''s Choice "Insightful [and] frequently funny.Bloom manages to translate abstract principles into clear, readable prose, making complex material accessible to the layperson without oversimplifying. His voice is witty, engaging, and candidly quirky.Reveals striking truths about the nature of morality and humanity." -- Boston Globe "Fascinating." --The Atlantic "Bloom has a talent for distilling scholarly work (his and others'') into accessible, appealing prose.He writes with both an authority and an openness that suggest he would enjoy a lively discussion with any skeptics." --Washington Post "Bloom -- an elegant, lucid and economical writer -- makes an excellent guide.He''s an observer and evaluator who''s not ideologically invested in any one interpretation of the evidence. If he takes exception with moral philosophy''s fixation on depersonalized thought problems, he is just as leery of the notion that morality is entirely based on feelings derived from our evolutionary past. The hard-wired stuff is just the beginning, Bloom points out, and reason has an essential part to play in our moral development, as well." -- Laura Miller, Salon "In a lively, accessible style, Bloom.draws on research into adults from many societies, including the extant hunter-gatherer tribes. And he tackles the moral claims of philosophy and religion, arguing that we understand how the ''amoral force of natural selection'' may have instilled the foundations for moral thought and action." --New Scientist "Brisk and authoritative.[Bloom''s] discussion of disgust is particularly good.the experiments he describes are nifty." -- Nature "One comes to Paul Bloom for his unfailingly brilliant psychological research; one stays for the wise and relaxed way he writes about it." -- Jim Holt, author of Why Does the World Exist? : An Existential Detective Story "The rich cognitive and moral life of babies is among the most fascinating discoveries of twenty-first-century psychology. Paul Bloom explains how this work illuminates human nature, and does it with his trademark clarity, depth, discernment, and graceful style." -- Steven Pinker , professor of psychology, Harvard University; author of How the Mind Works "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 wonder." -- Jonathan Haidt, Thomas Cooley Professor of Ethical Leadership, New York University Stern School of Business; author of The Happiness Hypothesis and The Righteous Mind " Just Babies is an extremely important book. Today it is received wisdom that morality is unreal: our evolutionary instincts are purely selfish. We''re also told that human society is built on irrational impulses, that reason and choice count for nothing. A leading experimental psychologist, but also a skilled reader of philosophy, Bloom authoritatively punctures both of these errors. Lively and deftly argued, with admirably fair treatment of opposing views, Just Babies shows that humans inherit a rich basis for morality, but also some disturbing tendencies. Making the best of the good and doing what we can to inhibit the bad is the job of history, culture and reason." -- Martha C. Nussbaum , Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law and Ethics, University of Chicago; author of Political Emotions "Wonderfully clear and entertaining.If you want to understand yourself, your children, and the psychopath in the next cubicle better than you do at present--read this book." -- Sam Harris , author of Free Will and The End of Faith " Just Babies is a fascinating, original exploration of our sense of right and wrong.
