Introducing basic distinctions in philosophy of mind for characterizing the mental, Perner discusses differences in how commonsense and cognitive psychology view the mind. He traces the onset of a commonsense psychology in the social and emotional awareness of early infancy, revealing how the child begins to take a cognitive, representational view of the mind with repercussions for children's episodic memory, self-control, and their ability to engage in deception.

Perner's book is a model of writing in cognitive development. There is a burgeoning literature on the child's theory of mind, and this book synthesizes it masterfully.
