George Lakoff packs the house!
Over 90 people turned out this afternoon to hear George Lakoff, author of Don’t Think of an Elephant and Professor of Cognitive Science and Linguistics at UC Berkeley. Professor Lakoff spoke on his fascinating new book The Political Mind: Why You Can’t Understand 21st-Century American Politics with an 18th-Century Brain.
We asked the professor what he was reading these days and he told us:
Marco Iacoboni's Mirroring People: The New Science of How We Connect with Others and Michael Chabon's The Yiddish Policeman's Union.
