Three Seductive Ideas

Synopsis

Kagan devotes the majority of this book to three ubiquitous ideas, each in its own seductively titled chapter: 'A Passion for Abstraction,' 'The Allure of Infant Determinism,' and 'The Pleasure Principle.' Using evidence from hundreds of empirical studies, Kagan not only refutes each belief, but also explains why so many developmentalists are prone to hold them... The three ideas presented in this book may be seductive, but Kagan's thorough critique of them is more persuasive still. This book is highly recommended to researchers, teachers, and parents alike. It is a service to the field of developmental psychology and to the children Kagan has studied throughout his distinguished career.
