Today on bloggingheads, I talk to Gary Marcus, NYU psychologist and author of the new book Kluge, about all the telling ways in which our minds let us down, and what those shortcomings tell us about how it evolved.

    And by golly, he spelled it right, too. “Kluge”, the German word (pr. “kloo-guh”) for “clever”, not “kludge”, which to my phonetic sense rhymes with “fudge”.

    Sorry; pet peeve.

    I have seen a lot of Blogging Heads presentations. This was one of the best.
