About the Authors
  • Because we engage with the world and each other through our bodies and bodily movements, being able to represent one's own and others' bodies is fundamental to human perception, cognition and behaviour. This edited book brings together, for the first time, developmental perspectives on the growth of body knowledge in infancy and early childhood and how it intersects with other aspects of perception and cognition. The book is organised into three sections addressing the bodily self, the bodies of others and integrating self and other. Topics include perception and representation of the human form, infant imitation, understanding biological motion, self-representation, intention understanding, action production and perception and children's human figure drawings. Each section includes chapters from leading international scholars drawn together by an expert commentary that highlights open questions and directions for future research.

    • The first volume to bring together research and theory on how body representations arise, develop and influence social perception and cognition in early development
    • Expert commentaries are provided for the three sections of the book: a) bodily self, b) bodies of others, and c) integrating self and other

    "I would wholeheartedly recommend Early Development of Body Representations to anyone interested in the specific problem of early body representation as well as in the larger problem of the development of body- and self-experience … may ultimately help psychology see itself and be seen by other fields as a unified, theory-driven, differentiated, and integrated science of experience and action."
    Dr Jack Demick, Department of Education and the Center for the Study of Human Development, Brown University, PsycCRITIQUES
