Constructing a Mind, One Image Schema at a Time
Reznick, J. Steven; Bauer, Patricia J.
Journal of Cognition and Development, v9 n2 p253-255 Apr 2008
In "The Foundations of Mind," Jean Mandler describes how perceptual analysis provides a mechanism that allows infants to begin their journey into conceptual life, and subsequently to enter the advanced worlds of conceptual systems, memory, language, and consciousness. This review provides an overview of Mandler's theoretical position, celebrates her accomplishments, and supports the claim that "The Foundations of Mind" is a "must read" for all developmental scientists.
