The Philosophical Baby

What Children's Minds Tell Us About Truth, Love, and the Meaning of Life

For most of us, having a baby is the most profound, intense, and fascinating experience of our lives. Now scientists and philosophers are starting to appreciate babies, too. The last decade has witnessed a revolution in our understanding of infants and young children. Scientists used to believe that babies were irrational, and that their thinking and experience were limited. Recently, they have discovered that babies learn more, create more, care more, and experience more than we could ever have imagined. And there is good reason to believe that babies are actually smarter, more thoughtful, and even more conscious than adults. This new science holds answers to some of the deepest and oldest questions about what it means to be human. A new baby's captivated gaze at her mother's face lays the foundations for love and morality. A toddler's unstoppable explorations of his playpen hold the key to scientific discovery. A three-year-old's wild make-believe explains how we can imagine the future, write novels, and invent new technologies. Alison Gopnik - a leading psychologist and philosopher, as well as a mother - explains the groundbreaking new psychological, neuroscientific, and philosophical developments in our understanding of very young children, transforming our understanding of how babies see the world, and in turn promoting a deeper appreciation for the role of parents.

Perhaps only the animals can tell us what it is to be human. The souls of ten animals caught up in human conflicts over the last century tell their astonishing stories of life and death. In a trench on the Western Front a cat recalls her owner Colette's theatrical antics in Paris. In Nazi Germany a dog seeks enlightenment. A Russian tortoise once owned by the Tolstoys drifts in space during the Cold War. In the siege of Sarajevo a bear starving to death tells a fairytale. And a dolphin sent to Iraq by the US Navy writes a letter to Sylvia Plath. Exquisitely written, playful and poignant, Only the Animals is a remarkable literary achievement by this bright young writer. An animal's-eye view of humans at our brutal, violent worst and our creative, imaginative best, it asks us to find our way back to empathy not only for animals, but for other people, and to believe again in the redemptive power of reading and writing fiction.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Social Media Star is an irreverent, self aware and ultimately heartwarming poem for adults. From sponsored posts and crowdfunding to telling people how to vote and what to post, this book satirically explores how a parent might explain the hilarious world of internet fame to a child.

Welches Ereignis lockt regelmäßig Menschen in über 180 Ländern vor den Fernseher? Was haben schon 1,2 Milliarden Menschen im TV gesehen? Den Superbowl? Das Fußball-WM-Finale? Die Olympischen Spiele? Nicht ganz. Der Name hinter diesen Zahlen lautet: Grylls. Bear Grylls. Wenn sich der ehemalige Elitesoldat des britischen Special Air Service SAS durch die Wildnis kämpft, scheinbar Ungenießbares verspeist und ganz nebenbei jede Menge Überlebenstricks zum Besten gibt, kleben auch in Deutschland zahlreiche Fans vor dem Bildschirm. Auf DMAX läuft sein Format "Ausgesetzt in der Wildnis" und begeistert eine stetig steigende Zuschauerzahl. Bear Grylls lernte früh das Segeln und Klettern. In jungen Jahren begeisterte er sich für Bergsteigen und Kampfsport. Sein Weg führte ihn weiter zu den legendären Special Forces des britischen SAS. Bei einem Fallschirmabsturz in Afrika zog er sich drei Wirbelsäulenbrüche zu. Die Ärzte waren nicht sicher, ob er jemals wieder laufen würde. Allen Unkenrufen zum Trotz - und gegen den Rat seiner Ärzte - wurde er 18 Monate später der jüngste Brite, der den Mount Everest bezwang. Und das war nur der Anfang zahlreicher Abenteuer ... Nun erzählt Bear Grylls zum ersten Mal seine Geschichte.

What's it like to go from sitting two rows behind George W. Bush in church to explaining ass-less chaps to a two-year-old while wandering through the Castro neighborhood of San Francisco? Robin Dutton-Cookston grew up in a Texas town where the only chaps were found at the annual rodeo, yet she found herself peeing on the pregnancy stick while still unpacking the boxes in her hipster San Francisco apartment. Life in the mama-lane quickly straddled the great divide between red and blue states, and Robin learned to blend new age street smarts and deep-fried southern hospitality when raising her daughter. Take a trip to San Francisco Mamaland and sneak a peek into an odyssey of bumbling motherhood. It all takes place in a city where what passes as ordinary-same-sex mommies and daddies, creative facial piercings, rabid political rallies, and professional families who can't afford to buy a house-evokes gasps of shock and awe from folks back in Texas. On the way Robin covers universal parenting themes common to many mamas and daddies: breastfeeding chaos, naptime battles, life transitions, the quest for a sense of home, and the need teach her California child the subtle difference between east and west Texas barbeque sauce.

Why seek outside answers when you already possess the resources and power you need? In a world moving faster than ever, the challenge to stay connected to others, your visions, and yourself is great. The Tiny Warrior teaches how to look inward and find strength by learning to use your warrior spirit. In Native American traditions, warriors had a creed-to develop themselves as assets to the village they served. Your "village" can be your family, community, company, clients, or the world-anyone you serve. The warrior concept transcends race, gender, or age. Noted Native American speaker turned author D. J. Eagle Bear Vanas uses wisdom from his Odawa Indian roots and his path as an officer in the U.S. Air Force and later as an entrepreneur to interweave the Native tradition of storytelling with practical key bits of knowledge to live and learn by.By following Vanas's direction, you can develop your talent and ability to better serve and defend others. As a bonus, Vanas includes "Reflections and Breakthroughs" space at the end of the book for you to record your own revelations on each chapter.
