The location of this meetup will be Espresso Roma on Hopkins St in Berkeley.
We will be discussing “Becoming Human: A Theory of Ontogeny” by Michael Tomasello. Because this book was just published in June it may be hard to find in libraries. The Kindle version is $20. As an alternative to buying the book, you can find an excellent one hour summary by Tomasello on Youtube at: https://youtu.be/BNbeleWvXyQ
Other resources: Tomasello’s “Great Apes and Human Development: A Personal History” (four pages): www.eva.mpg.de/documents/.../Tomasello_Great_ChildDev%20_2018_[masked].pdf Goodreads:
Finally, Wikipedia has a nice summary of of Tomasello’s ideas: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Tomasello
During the meetup, we can also share thoughts & ideas about various other books we have read in the field of cognitive science and other related disciplines (such as evolutionary psychology or neuroscience).
I look forward to meeting and discussing cognitive science with you!
