Bis in die jüngste Vergangenheit blieb uns der Zugang zu vielen der interessanten Aspekte des Denkens von Kindern verwehrt. Philosophen haben sich Jahrhunderte lang darum gestritten, ob Säuglinge die Welt als "strahlendes und dröhnendes Durcheinander" sehen oder ganz ähnlich wie ältere Kinder und Erwachsene. Erst mit der Entwicklung aufschlußreicher experimenteller Methoden in den vergangenen Jahren wurde die Antwort deutlich. Sogar Neugeborene sehen bestimmte Aspekte der Welt recht klar und mit 6 Monaten ähnelt die Wahrnehmung von Säuglingen der von Erwachsenen. Dies und andere Erkenntnisse über das Denken von Kindern sind Gegenstand dieses Buches.
