Description

“There are words that are so familiar they obscure rather than illuminate the thing they mean, and ‘learning’ is such a word. It seems so ordinary, everyone does it. Actually it’s more of a black box, which Dehaene cracks open to reveal the awesome secrets within.” (The New York Times Book Review)

An illuminating dive into the latest science on our brain's remarkable learning abilities and the potential of the machines we program to imitate them.

The human brain is an extraordinary learning machine. Its ability to reprogram itself is unparalleled, and it remains the best source of inspiration for recent developments in artificial intelligence. But how do we learn? What innate biological foundations underlie our ability to acquire new information, and what principles modulate their efficiency?

In How We Learn, Stanislas Dehaene finds the boundary of computer science, neurobiology, and cognitive psychology to explain how learning really works and how to make the best use of the brain’s learning algorithms in our schools and universities, as well as in everyday life and at any age.

Commentaires

"[An] expert overview of learning.... Never mind our opposable thumb, upright posture, fire, tools, or language; it is education that enabled humans to conquer the world.... Dehaene's fourth insightful exploration of neuroscience will pay dividends for attentive readers." (Kirkus Reviews)

“[Dehaene] rigorously examines our remarkable capacity for learning. The baby brain is especially awesome and not a 'blank slate'.... Dehaene’s portrait of the human brain is fascinating.” (Booklist)

"A richly instructive [book] for educators, parents, and others interested in how to most effectively foster the pursuit of knowledge." (Publishers Weekly

not easy to listen to, but worth forcing yourself

As the author says, meta-cognition is important. It might not be fun to listen to at times, but stick through it. After all, we're supposed to do more and more difficult activities with our brains. The information that you'll extract by the end will have made it worthwhile.

Very Interesting!

As educators, some of what he talks about we know intuitively... but here is the science to support it. This gave me a different and beneficial perspective that I can take with me into the classroom. I listened to it, but I think having the text might be more beneficial to reference back to.

A fascinating and illuminating must for parents, teachers, policy makers and scientists.

Neuroscience, artificial intelligence, educational pedagogy, language, literacy, math and sleep strung together in articulate relatable prose to guide the next generation of parents and educators; this was a fascinating and illuminating read. Dehaene’s 4 pillars will hopefully be discussed and applied firmly on a foundation of science.

Better understand oneself

In my opinion this book should be a set book, because it's a fundamental necessity to understand, how our brain works in order to efficiently use it and to better understand oneself. This books reasonably summarises basic neuroscientific knowledge and evaluates it's consequences. One remark is the lack of examples for some concepts and it's sometimes a little hard to understand for beginners, although this remark is only small and probably subjective. Another remark is the slightly misleading title, which made me hope the author would speculate about the future of artificial intelligence, unfortunately it's was only briefly mentioned. The book was quite interesting and informative and I would recommend it, especially if you have children yourself.
