This grand synthesis of three decades of collaborative research at the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig is a landmark in our understanding of human development.--Paul Harris, Harvard University This is a must-read from a thinker who has had a major hand in our current understanding of the genealogy of human uniqueness and character.--Henry Wellman, University of Michigan Magisterial--merging primatology, developmental psychology, cognitive psychology and evolution...Makes an impressive argument that most distinctly human traits are established early in childhood and that the general chronology in which these traits appear can at least--and at last--be identified.--David P. Barash"Wall Street Journal" (01/11/2019) How does human psychological growth run in the first seven years, in particular how does it instill 'culture' in us? Tomasello addresses this question...by comparing us to chimpanzees and bonobos. Most of all, how does the capacity for shared intentionality and self-regulation evolve in people? This is a very thoughtful and also important book.-- (10/20/2018) Becoming Human is destined to become a classic. Anyone who is interested in cognitive science, child development, human evolution, or comparative psychology should read this book. It surely would have provoked a letter from Darwin--an intellectual ancestor, along with Vygotsky, of this scientific masterpiece.--Andrew Meltzoff, University of Washington Theoretically daring, experimentally ingenious, and astonishingly generative, Becoming Human squarely tackles the abiding question of what makes us human.--Susan Gelman, University of Michigan
