Paul Harris of the Harvard Graduate School of Education is interested in the early development of cognition, emotion and imagination. His most recent book discusses how children rely on their own firsthand observation or alternatively trust what other people tell them, especially when they confront a domain of knowledge in which firsthand observation is difficult.

The talk is sponsored by the Developmental Science Initiative and the Samuel B. Cummings Lectureship Fund.
