Francine Klein

Learn to Think, Learn to Love Publication date : April 1, 1991

Is everything determined at birth and in our first months of life? Why is it that certain children experience difficulty in learning to walk and to speak? Why them and not others? By describing the mechanics of learning and intellectual development, Francis Klein emphasizes the role of affection and relational factors on early development. She reminds us that to learn to think pre-supposes pleasure and liberty.

Francine Klein is a children's psychiatrist and a psychoanalyst.
