Human reasoning is remarkably shallow - in fact our thinking and justifications just scratch the surface of the true complexity of the issues we deal with. The ability to think may still be the greatest wonder in the world (and beyond), but the way that individuals think is less than ideal. In The Knowledge Illusion, Sloman and Fernbach show that our intelligence resides not in individual brains but in the collective mind. To function, individuals rely not only on knowledge that is stored within our skulls but also on knowledge stored elsewhere, be it in our bodies, in the environment, or especially in other people. Put together, human thought is incredibly impressive, but at its deepest level it never belongs to any individual alone. And yet the mind supports the most sublime, incredible phenomenon of all: consciousness. How can any of this be possible with a mind that is so imperfect? This is one of the key challenges confronted in this book. The Knowledge Illusion ties together established scientific facts whilst also considering what the mind is for. Understanding why the mind is as it is and what it is for will show why we need to consider it as extending beyond our skulls; why we should think about ´the mind´ as far more than an extension of the brain, as an emergence from multiple brains interacting. Simply put, individuals know relatively little, but the human hive that emerges when people work together knows a lot. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Chamberlain.

We all think we know more than we actually do. Humans have built hugely complex societies and technologies, but most of us don´t even know how a pen or a toilet works. How have we achieved so much despite understanding so little? Cognitive scientists Steven Sloman and Philip Fernbach argue that we survive and thrive despite our mental shortcomings because we live in a rich community of knowledge. The key to our intelligence lies in the people and things around us. We´re constantly drawing on information and expertise stored outside our heads: in our bodies, our environment, our possessions, and the community with which we interact - and usually we don´t even realize we´re doing it. The human mind is both brilliant and pathetic. We have mastered fire, created democratic institutions, stood on the moon, and sequenced our genome. And yet each of us is error prone, sometimes irrational, and often ignorant. The fundamentally communal nature of intelligence and knowledge explains why we often assume we know more than we really do, why political opinions and false beliefs are so hard to change, and why individually oriented approaches to education and management frequently fail. But our collaborative minds also enable us to do amazing things. This book contends that true genius can be found in the ways we create intelligence using the world around us. 1. Language: English.

To the Best of Our Knowledge: Making Magic, Hör...

In this hour, novelist Erin Morgenstern´s darkly magical novel revolves around a mysterious circus and a contest that pits two young students of magic against each other. Next, Alex Stone is a professional magician with a physics degree. In a new book, Fooling Houdini, he breaks ranks with his fellow magicians, revealing some of the tricks of the trade and their basis in cognitive science. He performs a feat of psychic magic with our radio audience.Then, the last remaining magician´s colony in India -- Kathputli, in Delhi -- is slated to be be bulldozed to make way for shopping malls and high rises. Filmmakers Jim Goldblum and Adam Weber are documenting this thousand-year old tradition of conjuring and illusion before it disappears forever. After that, in traditional cultures, magic can be more than performance -- it can be a way of seing the world and a form of medicine. Philosopher and ecologist David Abram shares lessons from his experiences with shamanic healers. He also performs a little sleight-of-hand in our studio.Following that, historian Deborah Harkness studies the history of alchemy and Elizabethan magic. Her best-selling novels, A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night involve magical historical manuscripts, time travel, and witches and vampires with very impressive academic credentials. She talks with us about the historical connections between magic and science.And finally, Evolutionary biologist and celebrated (and occasionally reviled) atheist Richard Dawkins attempts to redefine ´´magic´´ as a reality-based, non-supernatural function of the mind.

Craig Beck is known as the Stop Drinking Expert because he helps people to see the truth about alcohol. The shocking reality that is hidden behind the smoke and mirrors of the marketing and our own self-created social conditioning. His book Alcohol Lied to Me has topped best seller lists for many years and has been translated into several different languages. ´´Alcohol is the ultimate wolf in sheep´s clothing, a deeply insidious and dangerous drug packaged into pretty bottles and marketed as a fun, social pleasantry by the drinks manufacturers. The western world is conditioned from birth to believe that good times and alcohol go hand in hand. In reality consuming this drug is like playing a very dangerous game of Buckaroo, the longer you keep playing the more chance you have the mule will kick and destroy your world.´´ - Craig Beck In this specially extended edition of his Alcohol Illusion series, Craig explains how you are not your addiction. You are not weak willed or broken. Alcoholism affects millions of people regardless of their gender, location, intelligence, or social standing. Craig helps to explain this by describing your addiction to alcohol as though it is an Evil Clown that lives inside your head. Whispering encouragement in your ear as though he is your best friend. However, the smile is only painted on and this clown is actually your worst enemy. Using the techniques in this book you can effectively and easily create separation between the real you and the addicted version of you. This is powerful because the moment you can see how the Evil Clown is pulling your strings is the same moment you slip out of his grasp. All magic loses its power when you discover how the trick is done and the same is true of the alcohol trap. Knowledge is power and this book will help you to easily stop drinking without ineffective willpower, dangerous medication, or expensive rehab. www.StopDrinkingExpert. 1. Language: English.
