Kluge

Kluge

Synopsis

The author of The Birth of the Mind argues that the human mind is not a meticulously designed organ but rather a "kluge," a clumsy, cobbled-together contraption, offering a revealing study of some of the complex aspects of human nature, how the mind falls short in such areas as memory, belief, decision-making, language, and emotion, and the influence of evolution on the creation of the human mind.
