  • The Pulitzer Prize finalist and national bestseller How the Mind Works is a fascinating, provocative work exploring the mysteries of human thought and behavior. How do we see in three dimensions? How do we remember names and faces? How is it, indeed, that we ponder the nature of our own consciousness? Why do we fall in love? In this bold, extraordinary book, Pinker synthesizes the best of cognitive science and evolutionary biology to explain what the mind is, how it has evolved, and, ultimately, how it works. This edition includes a new afterword that explores the impact of the book and its relevance today. [3]

Comments[edit]

  • Steven Pinker may better note that the flamingo is stiffly pinker than the bruin or the brown bear of etymological tautology, which in turn is so pinker than the grizzly and any other species. This mathematically provable notion has been well known since Eleanor Rosch's prototype theory refined around semantic categories in 1975 in accordance with Paul Grice's (1975) famous implicature or the implicit nature of meaning in mind, that is, embodied a posteriori, acquired or learned, rather than embedded a priori, innate or inborn.
