Steven Pinker – How the Mind Works


In this delightful, acclaimed best seller, one of the worlds leading cognitive scientists tackles the workings of the human mind. What makes us rationaland 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 Pinkers bold and buoyant classic is updated with a new foreword by the author.
