How the Mind Works (Unabridged)

by Steven Pinker

Open iTunes to Buy

Description

In this delightful, acclaimed best seller, one of the world's leading cognitive scientists tackles the workings of the human mind. What makes us rational - and why are we so often irrational? How do we see in three dimensions? What makes us happy, afraid, angry, disgusted, or sexually aroused? Why do we fall in love? And how do we grapple with the imponderables of morality, religion, and consciousness? How the Mind Works synthesizes the most satisfying explanations of our mental life from cognitive science, evolutionary biology, and other fields to explain what the mind is, how it evolved, and how it allows us to see, think, feel, laugh, interact, enjoy the arts, and contemplate the mysteries of life. This new edition of Pinker's bold and buoyant classic is updated with a new foreword by the author.

Customer Reviews

Primer

Pinker is brilliant, but this book is rather out of date and reads like a high school textbook. The narrator has a soothing voice, but for me this just adds to the sluggish simplicity of the text.
