Published in London by Folio Society. 2013. First Thus. Fine Hardback. Sealed. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. Illustrated by Andy Martin. What is happiness? Why do we fall in love? How do we recognise faces? Pinker's exhilarating book explores the machinery of the mind – its origins and development, and how we use it to interact with the world. How the Mind Works. Steven Pinker is a leading authority on cognitive science and linguistics. In this exhilarating book he explores the machinery of the mind – its origins and development, and how we use it to see, think, feel, interact and grapple with the mysteries of our existence. What is happiness? Why do phobias of spiders and peanut butter exist? How is it that memories fade? Why do we fall in love? What makes us laugh? And why do people believe in ghosts and spirits? Pinker answers these imponderables by drawing from a number of ideas about the mind – in particular the evolutionary theory – and crafts them into a gripping, cohesive account of human psychology.
