The Silver Tsunami with Attorney Michael Lasky

11/1/2018
More
What to do? If you own a business, you probably figure you will be able to sell it someday for a tidy sum. The problem is that you have about a 5% chance of selling if you didn’t plan for the sale years ago. It is believed that over the next 10 years, a trillion dollars’ worth of businesses will be up for sale. Mostly by boomers who want out. Most of these businesses will shut their doors without any buyers. The owners will lose, but a lot of employees will lose their jobs too. Michael...

The Soul Fallacy with Julien Musolino

In doing so, the book reveals the truly astonishing scope and power of scientific inquiry, drawing on ideas from biology, psychology,...

Truth with Hector Macdonald

8/2/2018
More
We like to think that there is a clear distinction between true and false. The reality is far murkier. Truth can be spun in the names used, the context applied, the omissions committed, the framing deployed and many other ways. “Truth” can look vey different to different people. Macdonald explains how these so-called “competing truths” are used both constructively and misleadingly by businesses, media, politicians, advertisers, and even regular people having regular conversations.

The Myth of Mirror Neurons with Greg Hickok

5/31/2018
More
In The Myth of Mirror Neurons, neuroscientist Gregory Hickok re-examines the mirror neuron story and finds that it is built on a tenuous foundation-a pair of co-dependent assumptions about mirror neuron activity and human understanding. Drawing on a broad range of observations from work on animal behaviour, modern neuroimaging, neurological disorders and more, Hickok argues that the foundational assumptions fall flat in light of the facts. He then explores alternative explanations of mirror...

Synesthesia with Richard Cytowic

4/26/2018

One in twenty-three people carry the genes for the synesthesia. Not a disorder but a neurological trait — like perfect pitch — synesthesia creates vividly felt cross-sensory couplings. A synesthete might hear a voice and at the same time see it as a color or shape, taste its distinctive flavor, or feel it as a physical touch. In this volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series, Richard Cytowic, the expert who returned synesthesia to mainstream science after decades of oblivion, offers...
