With automation changing the nature of work before our very eyes,
it is more important than ever that we begin to re-think our approach to
education, the workforce, and yes, even thinking itself.
In this episode of Hardly Working, Brent is joined by journalist
and acclaimed science writer Annie Murphy Paul to discuss how we can tap into
our bodies, surroundings, and other people to think better in an increasingly
complex economy and society. We discuss some of the insights from Murphy’s
latest book The Extended Mind, including why thinking of the brain as a
computer is problematic, the inherently social aspect of learning, and how to
shape a world that works for the kind of thinking our brains evolved to do.
