The chapters collected in this volume represent the "state-of-the-art" of research on the development of intentional action and intentional understanding--topics that are at the intersection of current research on imitation, early understanding of mental states, goal-directed behavior in nonhuman animals, executive function, language acquisition, and narrative understanding, to name just a few of the relevant foci. Collectively, the contributors demonstrate that intentionality is a key issue in the cognitive and social sciences. Moreover, in a way that was anticipated more than a century ago by the seminal work of J. Mark Baldwin, they are beginning to reveal how the control of action is related in development to children's emerging self-conscious and their increasingly sophisticated appreciation of other people's perspectives.

This volume brings together the world's leading researchers on early social and cognitive development in an in-depth exploration of children's understanding of themselves and others.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"...the findings presented in this text are dicidedly rich, the result of some creative experimental designs and observational techniques."
-Contemporary Psychology

"...provides a readable, even-handed approach to the nature of intentionality by providing converging evidence from language development, comparative, and social psychology."
-Child Development Abstracts and Bibliography

"Because each chapter in Zelazo, Astington, and Olson's book takes a different approach to answering the questions: What is intentionality? and How does intentionality influence development?, all of the chapters, taken together, present a very broad and, indeed, a very rich account. the principal attration of the book is in this very richness, with its diversity in focus and interpretation."
-Human Development
