Book Cover
“The authors of this exciting book argue vividly and convincingly that our ability to immerse ourselves mentally in past and future worlds is what makes us such a philosophizing, technologizing, and cogitating species. It’s a hot topic in cognitive neuroscience and a stroke of insight about what makes humans human.”
—Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and author of Rationality
“A fascinating perspective on what it means to be human, told with a clear voice and an expansive canvas. Sprinkled throughout the book are well-placed moments of deadpan humor to leaven the authoritative research.”
