Product description


The book will be of keen interest to those pursuing cognitive science and the study of development, psychology, psycholinguistics, perception, or linguistics. [...] Higlhy recommended. (G. C. Gamst, Choice,)

This collection brings together Pinker's most significant scholarly work across his considerable thirty-year academic career, representing the first time that the full scope of his work has been compiled within a single volume... Overall, it is highly representational of the core of Pinker's thought and provides a good overview of Pinker's career to date... an interesting and compelling read. (Psychology Learning and Teaching)

About the Author

Steven Pinker is the Johnstone Family Professor of Psychology at Harvard University, an eminent cognitive scientist, and the author of many popular books that synthesize large bodies of knowledge of cognitive science, evolutionary biology, and behavioral genetics into a comprehensive picture of how the mind works, how it evolved, and how we ought to bring these ideas to bear on theories of politics and morality. His scholarly work has won many prizes, including the Troland Award from the National Academy of Sciences, the Henry Dale Prize from the Royal Institution of Great Britain, the George Miller Prize from the Cognitive Neuroscience Society, and the Early Career Award and McCandless Prize from the American Psychological Association. He is Chair of the Usage Panel of the American Heritage Dictionary, and also writes frequently in the popular press, including The New York Times, Prospect, Slate, and The New Republic.
