About this product
- DescriptionDrawing on research in both animal and human subjects, Kagan presents a strong case for making qualitative distinctions among four different types of mental representation - perceptual schemata, visceral schemata, sensorimotor structures, and semantic networks-and describes how each is susceptible to the experience of discrepancy and the feeling of surprise or uncertainty. The implications of these findings are far-reaching, challenging ideas about the cognitive understandings of infants and revealing the bankruptcy of contemporary questionnaire-based personality theory. More broadly, Kagan demonstrates the risks of making generalisations about human behaviour, in which culture, context, and past experience play such paramount and unpredictable roles.
