About the Author:

Philip J. Kellman is Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles, and Co-Director of the UCLA Cognitive Science Research Program.

Review:

This book by Kellman and Arterberry is a revelation. The clear and dramatic presentation of the evidence about infants' early perceptual capabilities will have a major impact on how we understand infant behavior.

(Robert Shapley, Center for Neural Science, New York University)

The last three decades have witnessed remarkable revisions in our assessment of the perceptual and cognitive competencies of the human infant. Kellman and Arterberry document and assess the extensive literature that has led these revisions. Throughout their examination they display respect for the experimental findings and sophisticated sensitivity to the theoretical options. Kellman and Arterberry have served us well.

(William Epstein, Emeritus Professor of Psychology, University Wisconsin, Madison)

This is a fantastic, beautifully written book -- its coverage of theory and research on infant perception and cognition is the best and most comprehensive I have ever seen. It is must-reading, not only for students of infancy, but also for all who work on models of the architecture, computational underpinnings, and/or the learning mechanisms involved in our ability to perceive the world.

(Rochel Gelman, Department of Psychology, University of California, Los Angeles)

The authors present a wealth of experiments on perception and cognition in infancy, providing a thorough, up-to-date, and in-depth analysis of all major theories and empirical evidence currently available in this field. The discussion of each area is rich and stimulating, well-documented, and fine-grained. The Cradle of Knowledge is a major contribution to the field of cognition development.

(Arlette Streri, Professor of Psychology, Université René Descartes)

This book is a welcome addition to the burgeoning field of infant perception. It is especially strong on technical aspects of perception, such as stimulus information for perception and sensory-physiological mechanisms. It will be useful in general courses in perception, as well as in developmental courses, in showing how much of human knowledge is derived from perception.

(Eleanor J. Gibson, Professor Emeritus, Cornell University)

Kellman and Arterberry have created much more than a textbook. The Cradle of Knowledge examines the central question: how do we acquire information about the world? This provocative treatment of new infant findings challenges a learning-based account of perceptual development.

(Albert Yonas, Institute of Child Development, University of Minnesota)
