Development of Perception in Infancy

The Cradle of Knowledge Revisited

Martha E. Arterberry and Phillip J. Kellman

  • Consideration of infant perception research in light of long-standing philosophical and theoretical positions about the nature of perception.
  • Focus on the perceptual underpinnings of social and cognitive development.
  • Argument that the traditional constructivist view, emphasizing the construction of perceptual reality through extended learning, has been disconfirmed by experimental data in many domains.

New to this Edition:

  • Descriptions of what infants can do at various stages in their development.
  • Update since original publication in 1998 to infant perception research.
