Daniel C. Dennett - 2018-02-20 (publicado por primera vez en 2017)
Calificación de Goodreads
Explore the evolution of the human mind in From Bacteria to Bach and Back by Daniel C. Dennett. Dennett builds on recent discoveries from biology and computer science to show how our ability to share memes resulted in the development of a comprehending mind through a mindless process of natural selection. Discover how competition among memes produced thinking tools powerful enough that our minds don’t just perceive and react, they create and comprehend. An agenda-setting read for philosophers and scientists alike, From Bacteria to Bach and Back is a must-read for those curious about how the mind works.

Escasez. Por Qué Tener Poco Significa Tanto? book cover
Escasez. Por Qué Tener Poco Significa Tanto?
Sendhil Mullainathan - 2013-09-03
Calificación de Goodreads
Academic essay that takes shortage as a explanatory model to show the correlation between decision making and the administration of economic and time resources when solving problems effectively. For example, they find a strong correlation between poverty and failure with the affirmation that failure causes poverty. The behavioral economist, Sendhil Mullainathan and cognitive psychologist, Eldar Shafir, offer daily life examples in order to understand how shortage can be good, allowing to momentously focus, while at the same time it can be harmful because more important matters can be left untreated. Shortage grits the mind, proroguing a tunnel effect that is difficult to break out of, but not impossible to avoid.
