How the Mind Works

How-the-Mind-Works

Found this free pdf-version of Steven Pinkers bestseller “How the Mind Works and are planning to read through it the next weeks. What I’ve got from the reviews is that he tries to explain what the mind is, how it evolved, and how it allows us to see, think, feel, laugh, interact, enjoy the arts, and ponder the mysteries of life. Pinker rehabilitates some unfashionable ideas, such as that the mind is a computer and that human nature was shaped by natural selection, and challenges fashionable ones, such as that passionate emotions are irrational, that parents socialize their children, and that nature is good and modern society corrupting.

Can’t wait to get started!
