Alison Gopnik on what babies know
Babies and children may have a leg-up on their older counterparts. Alison Gopnik discusses childhood from an evolutionary perspective and argues that we can look to kids for truth, imagination, and even the meaning of life. According to Gopnik, babies know more, understand more, experience more, and learn more than we’ve ever thought before. Here, she discusses immaturity, experimentation, and what we can find out from the youngest generation.
