Pressestimmen

"What Nelson has done, though, in a readable, accessible, but very thorough way, is put children's communicative development into relation with their prior understanding and memory for events and with their later emerging capacity to produce autonomous discourse and to enter into the worlds of knowledge that it makes possible...This book by Nelson brings together the fields of linguistic and cognitive development by describing how acquiring language makes possible massive changes in the scope of cognition." Catherine Snow, Science "Language is the channel through which culture is recreated for every generation, through which knowledge is transmitted, and through which the autobiographical self is established...This book by Nelson brings together the fields of linguistic and cognitive development by describing how acquiring language makes possible massive changes in the scope of cognition."

Catherine Snow, Sicence "Nelson's ambitious, timely, and far reaching theory should stimulate readers to rethink how cognitive development takes place." James N. Forbes, Child Development Abstracts and Bibliography "...a truly significant contribution to the study of cognitive development." Michael Tomasello, Contemporary Psychology "The book deserves the serious attention of all scientists who wish to understand how human beings proceed ontogenetically from the individually based cognition characteristic of primates in general to the kinds of collective cognition, embodied in language and other cultural artifacts, that characterize mature Homo sapiens" Michael Tomasello, Contemporary Psychology "For linguists, the main value of the book lies perhaps not in the originality of its view on language acquisition as a process of collaborative construction of culture-specific concepts and categories through which the child becomes a member of a culture and a social group, but more in the convincing way this view is substantiated with a wealth of interesting data which no one interested in language acquisition can afford to ignore." Language "In sum, this important and thought-provoking book sets an ambitious agenda and progresses a long way toward achieving it." Maureen A. Callanan, Human Development
