Description

Brendan Wallace, with a background in psychology, demonstrates that the key claims of Evolutionary Psychology (EP), popularised by Steven Pinker and others, are based on the ‘brain is a digital computer’ argument. He then argues that as we now know this model of the brain will not work, therefore EP won’t work either, since it is based on a fallacious view of the mind/brain. The book, which is written in a reader friendly but rigorous style, is a timely assault on one of the most fashionable philosophies of mind currently ‘out there’.
