- How does the mind 'work'? In his book 'The anticipating mind', Peter Greve combines knowledge from various scientific disciplines with a new approach for describing the mind. This leads to a surprisingly coherent insight in the mental processes that underlie our thoughts and behavior. Among other things, the book offers transparent descriptions of consciousness and creativity, and it explains the way gut feeling, language and intuition cooperate within the body-and-mind systems of animals and human beings. Moreover, reasoning from a biological perspective, it argues that the development of anticipation skills must have been a major factor in the evolution of the brain. Since the book presents a bird's eye view over many different aspects of what the mind accomplishes it is a must read for people who are curious about the mind.
