The Stuff of Thought: Language as a Window into Human Nature

Manufacturer: Viking Adult
Editorial Review:
Steven Pinker analyses what words actually mean and how we use them, and he reveals what this can tell us about ourselves. He shows how we use space and motion as metaphors for more abstracted ideas, and uncovers the deeper structures of human thought that have been shaped by evolutionary history.
