Infant Cognition

Spring 2019

Taught By: Lawrence Hirschfeld

Section: A

CRN: 6784

Credits: 4

In this course, we will explore the development of conceptual understanding in infants and young children with a focus on how they come to make sense of their social worlds. We will examine the origins of the highly developed abilities that humans possess to recognize, remember, and reason about others as members of different social groups. We will focus on understanding the nature and scope of the precocious processes that underlie the later-emerging development of social categorization, group-based inference, and moral reasoning --as well as the conceptual habits that underlie them. Prerequisite: One Lang fundamentals course, or ULEC 2160, Introduction to Psychology, with a grade C, or higher.
