Emotions feel automatic to us; that's why scientists have long assumed that emotions are hardwired in the body or the brain. Today, however, the science of emotion is in the midst of a revolution on par with the discovery of relativity in physics and natural selection in biology. This paradigm shift has far-reaching implications not only for psychology but also medicine, the legal system, airport security, child-rearing, and even meditation.

Was genau hat Sie an How Emotions Are Made enttäuscht?

The author made a very big claim and compared it to the big revolutions in science, like Einstein's theory. However, in my opinion, the evidences she provided are not sufficient for that purpose.

In The Gardener and the Carpenter, pioneering developmental psychologist and philosopher Alison Gopnik argues that the familiar 21st-century picture of parents and children is profoundly wrong - it's not just based on bad science, it's bad for kids and parents, too. Drawing on the study of human evolution and her own cutting-edge scientific research into how children learn, Gopnik shows that although caring for children is profoundly important, it is not a matter of shaping them to turn out a particular way.

Gibt es irgendetwas, das Sie an diesem Hörbuch ändern würden?

The author provided us with lots of interesting research results in children's cognitive development. That's the fun part of the book. But then she went on to criticize the idea of modern school, the idea of treating ADHD as a psychological condition, and so on. Well, the researches do show that kids are capable of naturally acquiring the cognitive skills belonging to a normal human being, which could survive a hunter and gatherer society, but that's it. Kids can't just learn reading, maths, logical thinking, science, technical expertise and so on, which are immensely important in our world, just through playing or "apprenticeship", which she regarded as the best way of learning. Yes, schools today have many problems, but can she provide a better system? She dismisses the importance of the ability of "focusing", which is always required in schools. But can she show those kids who fail in schools due to ADHD a way to survive the competitive modern society? Not every school drop out can become a successful musician or athletet.
