The Stuff of Thought: Language as a Window Into Human Nature

by

The Stuff of Thought: Language as a Window Into Human Nature Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This New York Times bestseller is an exciting and fearless investigation of language.

Bestselling author Steven Pinker possesses that rare combination of scientific aptitude and verbal eloquence that enables him to provide lucid explanations of deep and powerful ideas. His previous books — including the Pulitzer Prize finalist The Blank Slate — have catapulted him into the limelight as one of today's most important popular science writers. In The Stuff of Thought, Pinker presents a fascinating look at how our words explain our nature. Considering scientific questions with examples from everyday life, The Stuff of Thought is a brilliantly crafted and highly readable work that will appeal to fans of everything from The Selfish Gene and Blink to Eats, Shoots and Leaves.

Synopsis:

New York Times-bestselling author Pinker marries two of the subjects he knows best: language and human nature. The result is a fascinating look at how words explain human nature.

About the Author

Steven Pinker is the Johnstone Family Professor of Psychology at Harvard University. He is the author of seven books, including The Blank Slate.
