Flexible Social Cognition

Invisible Mind by Lasana T. Harris Ph.D. | MIT Press


Released in March 2017 by MIT Press, Invisible Mind by Lasana T. Harris takes a social neuroscience approach to explaining the worst of human behavior. How can a person take part in racially motivated violence and then tenderly cradle a baby or lovingly pet a puppy? Harris argues that our social cognition—the ability to infer the mental states of another agent—is flexible.
