A Brief History of The Mind

Just picked up this book by William H. Calvin.

It tracks the evolution and development of the human brain dating back 7 million years.

It is a heavy read, but very informative given the perspective and Calvin's attempt to explain why things work the way they presently do. To do so, he looks from a neurobiological point of view and tries to figure out how nerve cells can analyze the world, make sensible plans for action, and manage interneurons that convert thought into action.

Each chapter begins with a quote. I found this one to be particularly interesting. 

[History] is concerned not with the events but with processes. Processes are things which do not begin and end but which turn into one another. - R.G. Collingwood, 1939
