About this book

Presents a grand synthesis of the most satisfying explanations of mental life that have been proposed in cognitive science and evolutionary biology, with insights from disciplines ranging from neuroscience to economics and social psychology.
`This is the best book ever written on the human mind. Here Darwin meets Turing - the theories of evolution and computation - and Steven Pinker effects the introduction with penetrating clarity, superb writing, and delicious wit. The science is authoritative, the style accessible, and the range astonishing' - Helena Cronin.
`Witty, lucid and enthralling' The Observer
`A landmark in popular science...a major public asset' Marek Kohn, The Independent
