Description: One of the most visible intellectuals in the new field of cognitive science and the bestselling author of The Language Instinct and How the Mind Works, Steven Pinker now explains the mysteries of language and mind in an entirely new way. Are we like computers, elegantly manipulating symbols, or are we like neural networks, making analogies from examples drilled into us when we were children? Arguing that the answer is "some of each", Pinker illustrates his theory in a thoroughly original way: by exploring our use of regular and irregular verbs, with the help of jokes, cartoons, song lyrics, letters to Ann Landers, and cutting-edge research in neuroscience and genetics. The result, say critics, is "breathtakingly exciting", "an intellectual joyride", and "a fascinating voyage of discovery".
