to the developmental wing of Cognitive Science.We have gradually come to realize that one of the best ways to understand the complexities of mental processes is to find their origins in infancy and trace them as they develop over time. My goal is to understand the foundations of mind, a project informally known as "how to build a baby". For an overview see my article on Representation in the 1998 Handbook of Child Psychology, listed in my vita. My book "The Foundations of Mind: Origins of Conceptual Thought", published by Oxford University Press, came out in 2004. (It received the APA Eleanor Maccoby Book Award in 2006 and the Cognitive Development Society Best Authored Book Award in 2007, and is now out in paperback and on-line as well).
