The Stuff of Thought: Language as a Window into Human Nature by Steven Pinker
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is primarily a book about linguistics. (I had been hoping that it was more about neurology). It is sometimes boring (mostly the beginning), sometimes interesting (mostly the end), sometimes inscrutable. I particularly liked the part about how impossible it is to visualize the reality of physics, a short section in the middle.
