How the Mind Works | Steven Pinker
How the Mind Works explores every aspect of our brains, showing that our minds are not a mystery, but rather a system designed by natural selection over years of human evolution.
Whether looking at optical illusions or religion, Mozart or films, Stephen Pinker offers us a new way of understating ourselves.
