Schemata and words -- What does it mean to know? -- Settings matter -- Status gradients -- Hyping genes -- Can brain explain mind? -- The family's contribution -- On spruce trees and cats -- What is education for? -- Expectations -- The force of feedings -- Does a moral person behave morally?
"Kagan relies on the evidence to argue that thoughts and emotions are distinct from their biological and genetic bases. In separate chapters he deals with the meaning of words, kinds of knowing, the powerful influence of social class, the functions of education, emotion, morality, and other issues. And without fail he sheds light on these ideas while remaining honest to their complexity."
