Steven Pinker: Organs of the mind and mental shortcuts 2/3 (10' 46") [TheInquisitor] | 1 | 3 |
Steven Pinker on the computational theory of mind and evolutionary psychology. Our mental faculties assume a world like that of our ancestors. Pinker describes some of the tricks our minds do, which helped us in the natural world, but can lead to maladaptive behaviour in the modern world.  From a conference in 1998 called Der Digitale Planet (The Digital Planet, I guess), which also included Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Jared Diamond and Douglas Adams. I may post the discussion and more from the other speakers later (Douglas Adams talk already uploaded).
