    Jerome Kagan is a favourite author of mine. He writes on a topic of interest, personality. He is a researcher and a presenter of relevant data, particularly on early childhood development.

    ‘On Being Human’ is a collection of essays by retired professor of psychology Jerome Kagan. He goes over issues such as brain scans being relatively useless for finding out where thoughts come from, given that a scanner is not the kind of place a person is usually in when thinking; the fact that neurons and chemicals do not tell us *how* a person things; and that using animals for research into thinking isn’t going to tell us how people think. There’s a lot about how environment shapes t [...]

    Jerome Kagan, an emeritus professor of psychology at Harvard University, has assembled a collection of essays which he says are inspired by Montaigne. For Kagan, this means without footnotes and collage-like in structure. Kagan is/was an academic and it shows. There is very little in these essays which could be classified as personal in the style of Montaigne. Nonetheless, the writing is fluid (if repetitive) and the points are clear.Kagan has four key messages: abstraction is a double-edged swo [...]
