Example text

The climber reaching the top does another dance of joy. In the second exposure the climber again is making a third attempt to go from the first plateau to the top of the incline. This time the entering figure, a hinderer, gives two bumps that push the climber down resulting in a tumble end-over-end to the bottom. The First Year of Life 19 In a second version of helper-hinderer scenes, 8-month-old infants observe a duck puppet struggling to open a transparent glass case enclosing an attractive rattle.

This brings us to an important issue, which is not about infancy per se but about the kind of model of mind, of mental processing, that we are employing to conceptualize an agentic sense of self. In order to build a conceptual map of the lived experience of self in the act of being a doer doing with others and with self, and a receiver processing information from others and from self, our observations need to be informed by a conceptual understanding of the modes of information processing underlying the moment-to-moment interactive lived experiences of infants.

There is more to be said on all these points, but let us focus for a moment on subsymbolic and imagistic processing, since both are paramount in the first year of life. Subsymbolic processing is often nonconscious though it may also be at the edge of core or primary consciousness in infancy and indeed throughout life. Subsymbolic processing is nonlinear rather than sequential and uses parallel distributed neural networks rather than combining discrete elements (Bucci, 1997). Subsymbolic processing often functions rapidly, for example, in making quick spatial and motor adjustments and often conveys a sense of here-and-now immediacy to the agentic self.
