both an authority and an openness that suggest he would enjoy a lively discussion with any skeptics Washington Post Bloom an elegant, lucid and economical writer makes an excellent guideHes an observer and evaluator whos not ideologically invested in any one interpretation of the evidence If he takes exception with moral philosophys fixation on depersonalized thought problems, he is just as

play in our moral development, as well Laura Miller, Salon In a lively, accessible style, Bloomdraws on research into adults from many societies, including the extant hunter gatherer tribes And he

portrait of human nature, with all its beauty, horror, and wonder Jonathan Haidt, Thomas Cooley Professor of Ethical Leadership, New York University Stern School of Business author of The Happiness Hypothesis and The Righteous Mind Just Babies is an extremely important book Today it is received wisdom that morality is unreal our evolutionary instincts are purely selfish We re also told that human society is built on irrational impulses, that reason and choice count for nothing A leading experimental psychologist, but also a skilled reader of philosophy, Bloom authoritatively punctures both of these errors Lively and deftly argued, with admirably fair treatment of opposing views, Just Babies shows that humans inherit a rich basis for morality, but also some disturbing tendencies Making the best of the good and doing what we can to inhibit the bad is the job of history, culture and reason Martha C Nussbaum, Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law and Ethics, University of Chicago author of Political Emotions Wonderfully clear and entertainingIf you want to understand yourself, your children, and the psychopath in the next cubicle better than you do at

DeCamp Professor of Bioethics, Princeton University author of The Life You Can Save Paul Bloom has such an interesting mind, and it s a rare treat to follow as he tracks the origins of human morality

Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy The Origins of Good and Evil is an ambitious subtitle, but this book earns it Paul Bloom combines graceful, witty writing with intellectual rigor to produce a compelling account of how and why people are so wonderful and so horrible Drawing on his own pioneering work and the work of many other psychologists, Bloom shows that, from infancy on, the imprint of our creator, natural selection, is evident we are in some sense moral animals, complete with compassion and a sense of justice, but our moral compass can be self serving, sometimes to gruesome effect Still, transcendence of a sort is possible Bloom rightly emphasizes the edifying power of reason and self reflection, and notes how these tools of enlightenment have led to genuine moral progress This book, by fostering self reflection, is itself a tool of enlightenment, and can help humanity take another step toward the good Robert Wright, author of The Moral Animal and The Evolution of God Just Babies is exactly the combination of penetrating insight, cutting edge science, and elegant prose that readers have come to expect from one of psychology s best writers and sharpest minds Daniel Gilbert, Edgar Pierce Professor of Psychology,Harvard University author of Stumbling on Happiness Paul Bloom is a scientist who knows how to tell a

with Einstein The Art and Science of Remembering Everything That morality is bred into us is clear from the evolutionary continuity with other species as well as the reactions of young infants long before we can expect moral reasoning and logic In his lively, personable style Paul Bloom reviews the spectacular new evidence for the early emergence of the human sense of right and wrong Frans de Waal, author of The Bonobo and the Atheist C H Candler Professor and Director of the Living Links Center at the Yerkes Primate Center Without God does anything go No, because we have an evolved moral nature that gives us a sense of right and wrong But when does this sense develop Thanks to Paul Bloom and this remarkable and important book, we have an answervery early childhood Just Babies is a vital contribution to the scientific study of morality that fills in a major gap in our understanding of human nature, and as a bonus it s a riveting read Michael Shermer, publisher of Skeptic magazine and author of The Science of Good and Evil Paul Bloom is one of the best psychologist writers today In Just Babies he combines hard data with charming anecdote and incisive analysis to explore one of the most profound questions that s ever confronted mankind how we become moral beings He makes an erudite and impassioned case for the primacy of deliberation and reason in our livesa truth given short shrift in pop psychology Sally Satel, M.D., coauthor of Brainwashed The Seductive Appeal of Mindless Neuroscience Bloom makes a convincing case that morality demands compassion but sometimes also overrides it An engaging examination of human morality Kirkus Reviews With wit and passion, Yale psychology professor Bloom How Pleasure Works explores the nature of morality, drawing on current research in psychology, evolutionary biology, and philosophy while discussing which factors appear to be innate and which are culturally determined.Bloom convincingly establishes that the nature of morality is open to scientific investigation Publishers Weekly With his account sharply tuned to the general reader, Bloom skims along assuredly through the research He uses the findings to nimbly springboard into discussions of philosophy and psychology, exploring the bases of large moral debates, such as acceptable sexual practices or when killing is justified Of interest both to parents curious about the inner lives of their little ones and to those seeking a general, thought provoking examination of morality, the book offers remarkable insight into our first baby steps as moral beings Booklist From the Hardcover edition.A leading cognitive scientist argues that a deep sense of good and evil is bred in the bone.From John Locke to Sigmund Freud, philosophers and psychologists have long believed that we begin life as blank moral slates.Many of us take for granted that babies are born selfish and that it is the role of societyand especially parentsto transform them from little sociopathsinto civilized beings In Just Babies, Paul Bloom argues that humans are in fact hardwired with a sense of morality Drawing on groundbreaking research at Yale, Bloom demonstrates that, even before they can speak or walk, babies judge the goodness and badness of others actions feel empathy and compassion act to soothe those in distress and have a rudimentary sense of justice.Still, this innate morality is limited, sometimes tragically We are naturally hostile to strangers, prone to parochialism and bigotry Bringing together insights from psychology, behavioral economics, evolutionary biology, and philosophy, Bloom explores how we have come to surpass these limitations Along the way, he examines the morality of chimpanzees, violent psychopaths, religious extremists, and Ivy League professors, and explores our often puzzling moral feelings about sex, politics, religion, and race.In his analysis of the morality of children and adults, Bloom rejects the fashionable view that our moral decisions are driven mainly by gut feelings and unconscious biases Just as reason has driven our great scientific discoveries, he argues, it is reason and deliberation that makes possible our moral discoveries, such as the wrongness of slavery Ultimately, it is through our imagination, our compassion, and our uniquely human capacity for rational thought that we can transcend the primitive sense of morality we were born with, becoming than just babies.Paul Bloom has a gift for bringing abstract ideas to life, moving seamlessly from Darwin, Herodotus, and Adam Smith to The Princess Bride, Hannibal Lecter, and Louis C.K Vivid, witty, and intellectually probing, Just Babies offers a radical new perspective on our moral lives.
