Ep266 - Annie Murphy Paul | The Extended Mind: The Power of Thinking Outside the Brain

Annie Murphy Paul visits Google to discuss her book "The Extended Mind: The Power of Thinking Outside the Brain". The book discusses how we can tap the intelligence that exists beyond our brains—in our bodies, our surroundings, and our relationships. “Use your head” - that’s what we tell ourselves when facing a tricky problem or a difficult project. But a growing body of research indicates that we’ve got it exactly backwards. What we need to do, says Annie Murphy Paul, is think outside the brain. Her book, “The Extended Mind,” outlines the research behind this exciting new vision of human ability, exploring the findings of neuroscientists, cognitive scientists, and psychologists, and examining the practices of educators, managers, and leaders who are already reaping the benefits of thinking outside the brain. “The Extended Mind” offers a dramatic new view of how our minds work, full of practical advice on how we can all think better.
