Description

Unlock your mind. From the bestselling authors of Thinking, Fast and Slow; The Black Swan; and Stumbling on Happiness comes a cutting-edge exploration of the mysteries of rational thought, decision-making, intuition, morality, willpower, problem-solving, prediction, forecasting, unconscious behavior, and beyond.

Edited by John Brockman, publisher of Edge.org (The world's smartest website--The Guardian), Thinking presents original ideas by today's leading psychologists, neuroscientists, and philosophers who are radically expanding our understanding of human thought.

Contributors include:

  • Daniel Kahneman on the power (and pitfalls) of human intuition and unconscious thinking
  • Daniel Gilbert on desire, prediction, and why getting what we want doesn't always make us happy
  • Nassim Nicholas Taleb on the limitations of statistics in guiding decision-making
  • Vilayanur Ramachandran on the scientific underpinnings of human nature
  • Simon Baron-Cohen on the startling effects of testosterone on the brain
  • Daniel C. Dennett on decoding the architecture of the normal human mind
  • Sarah-Jayne Blakemore on mental disorders and the crucial developmental phase of adolescence
  • Jonathan Haidt, Sam Harris, and Roy Baumeister on the science of morality, ethics, and the emerging synthesis of evolutionary and biological thinking
  • Gerd Gigerenzer on rationality and what informs our choices
