Description

In this extraordinary bestseller, Steven Pinker, one of the world's leading cognitive scientists, does for the rest of the mind what he did for language in his 1994 book, The Language Instinct. He explains 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.

And he does it with the wit that prompted Mark Ridley to write in the New York Times Book Review, "No other science writer makes me laugh so much. . . . [Pinker] deserves the superlatives that are lavished on him."

The arguments in the book are as bold as its title. 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.

Както казва Блез Паскал: "Извинете, че Ви пиша толкова дълго писмо, но нямам време да го напиша по-кратко!" Интересни идеи, но... многословен и дразнещо разпилян. Последните няколкостотин страници са някакъв булеварден екзистенциализъм. Все пак си струва да се прочете първата част от книгата и да се преборите с излишните абзаци. "Мисленето" на Даниел Канеман ми хареса много повече.

Брилянтно четиво.

Норлинг 08/09/2018

Все още не съм привършил този "гигант", но първите ми впечатления са, че това е много добро четиво, особено за хора като скромната ми личност, които искат наистина да разберат как се получават нещата с онова там горе, дето изчислява и създава обективната реалност.
