Join us for a best of episode where Chris sits down with Annie Murphy Paul. Annie is an acclaimed science writer whose work has appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Scientific American, and The Best American Science Writing, among many other publications.
Chris speaks with Paul about her latest book “The Extended Mind”, which tells the stories of scientists and artists, authors and inventors, leaders and entrepreneurs—Jackson Pollock, Charles Darwin, Jonas Salk, Friedrich Nietzsche, Watson and Crick, among others—who have mastered the art of thinking outside the brain. It also explains how every one of us can do the same, tapping the intelligence that exists beyond our heads—in our bodies, our surroundings, and our relationships.
Hyams and Paul dive into how ‘experts’ are people who have mastered the art of thinking outside the brain and what the “naked brain” is and how it is severely limited in what it can do.
