An Early Cognitive and Evolutionary Psychology Christmas for Me



IMG_4837, originally uploaded by dynamicsubspace.

Sanrio Santa may have left Hello Kitty goodies for Y, but a friend in the English department gave me some dissertation gifts at the end of the semester that were much appreciated. Tammy gave me her extra copies of the following books: Steven Pinker’s The Blank Slate, Denis Dutton’s The Art Instinct, Lisa Zunshine’s Strange Concepts, Daniel C. Dennett’s Consciousness Explained, Semir Zeki’s Splendor’s and Miseries of the Brain, and Bryan Boyd’s On the Origin of Stories. I already had about half of these through the library, but now I have my own copies to hold my marginal notes.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.
