Hour 1:           How do our minds make sense of the world around us and how might the different ways our brains work lead to new understandings of language, psychology, and neuroscience? We’ll talk this hour with Benjamin Bergen, associate professor of Cognitive Science at the University of California, San Diego and author of the new book “Louder Than Words: The New Science of How the Mind Makes Meaning” (Basic Books, 2012).
