By: Steven Pinker
499 pages, Illus
Steven Pinker uses language as a window into human nature: he analyses what words actually mean and how we use them, and shows what that can tell us about ourselves. He reveals how we use space and motion as metaphors for more abstract ideas, and uncovers the deeper structures of human thought, which have been shaped by evolutionary history. He also explores the emotional impact of language, from names to swear words, and shows us its full power.
