Abstract:

What happens when we think? How do people make judgments? While different theories abound--and are heatedly debated--most are based on an algorithmic model of how the brain works. In this book, the author builds a case for a theory that thinking is based on recognizing patterns and that this process is intrinsically a-logical. Margolis gives a Darwinian account of how pattern recognition evolved to reach human cognitive abilities.
