    Kindle Kluge eBook ✓ Ì bricksnboho.co.uk kluge book, Kluge KindleKluge is a slang term for a clumsy or inelegant solution to a problem In this new book psychologist Gary Marcus argues that the human mind itself is a kluge and then goes on to discuss how this explains why you can't remember the name of that woman from your yoga class when you run into her at the movie theaterThe basis of Marcus' argument is that evolution was working with the tools at hand when it whipped up the complex parts of our brain and that

    Kindle Kluge eBook ✓ Ì bricksnboho.co.uk kluge book, Kluge KindleFairly short a very interesting look at how our brain evolved which keeps us from approaching anything like true rationality on a regular basis He discusses many brain bugs but from a different perspective than Dean Buonomano did in Brain Bugs How the Brain's Flaws Shape Our Lives Marcus gives the evolutionary perspectiveWell narrated enthralling throughout Highly recommendedTable of Contents1 Remnants of History Under stre

    Kindle Kluge eBook ✓ Ì bricksnboho.co.uk kluge book, Kluge KindleAs this book suggests the human mind is a mixture of inconsistencies It can systematically plan and prepare but it can also disregard those prepared plans in favor of immediate and short term gratification It can store and accurately retrieve memories but it can also hardly absorb readily available information and sometimes memories which can be retrieved at one particular time can also be distorted due to subjectively retained external stimuli In other words despite its reliability in certain aspects of information processing and retrieval it is actually a mixture of complex areas which oftentimes seem to work together in an intertwined manner—rational decisions can be influenced with the subjective preferences of emotionsThe human mind is not infinite in reason but as the book suggests it is of a ‘kluge’ A kluge is a clumsy or inelegant –yet surprising

    Kindle Kluge eBook ✓ Ì bricksnboho.co.uk kluge book, Kluge KindleThis wonderful book confronts a truth about evolution as it relates to biological science The title rhymes with 'rouge' or 'scrooge' and is slang for 'a clumsy or inelegant solution to a problem' It is used by Marcus to refer to the haphazard construction of the human mind as necessitated by evolutionDarwinian evolution has given us powerful insights which explain how each one of us as individuals are indeed individuals we are products of a system which while generally resulting in similar looking bodies for

    Kindle Kluge eBook ✓ Ì bricksnboho.co.uk kluge book, Kluge KindleThis book presented one of the best arguments I've heard against creationism intelligent design It suggests that we evolved enough to surive rather than to the very best so many human systems the spine our reasoning capacities even language is just good enough and often not the optimal but rather a kluge which does the job needed but nothing Why would an intelligent designer create such an imperfect system when they could make the best one possible I don't agree with everything this writer says but it is

    Kindle Kluge eBook ✓ Ì bricksnboho.co.uk kluge book, Kluge KindleMarcus takes a new slant our brains are the products of evolution and as such are not perfect In fact they're a kluge of different evolutionary developments each overlaying on top of each other He ends the book with some advice on how we can handle our imperfect minds sort of like a self help book on how we can deal with our klugey mindsOne annoying thing he gradually uses footnotes toward the end of the book For some reason it began to annoy me M

    Kindle Kluge eBook ✓ Ì bricksnboho.co.uk kluge book, Kluge KindleGreat idea for a book Short read big on ideas and soft on datasupporting studies I buy the narrative especially after reading Jonathan Haidt's excellent Happiness Hypothesis and reading Nudge as wellI appreciate the neuroscience and morality angle but it's hard for me to disentangle this book from the 'Hypothesis' I would suggest reading both to understand how your brain helps and hurts you and steps to make it run a little smoother
