Product description

"Human beings were never born to read," writes Tufts University cognitive neuroscientist and child development expert Maryanne Wolf. Reading is a human invention that reflects how the brain rearranges itself to learn something new.  In this ambitious, provocative book, Wolf chronicles the remarkable journey of the reading brain not only over the past five thousand years, since writing began, but also over the course of a single child's life, showing in the process why children with dyslexia have reading difficulties and singular gifts. Lively, erudite, and rich with examples, Proust and the Squid asserts that the brain that examined the tiny clay tablets of the Sumerians was a very different brain from the one this is immersed in today's technology-driven literacy. The potential transformations in this changed reading brain, Wolf argues, have profound implications for every child and for the intellectual development of our species.

Encuadernación: Rústica Colección: No ficción.DivulgaciónMás allá de la Historia oficial se esconde una Historia oculta que desconocemos. Existe un conocimiento secreto,que constituye una contraseña para acceder al núcleo central del Poder. Es mucho más que un liviano pasatiempo de los poderosos: multitud de obras literarias y ensayísticas incorporan estos contenidos, a veces de forma velada y en ocasiones de forma explícita. Los iniciados las expresan a través de la pintura,la literatura.el cine...y así exteriorizan su militancia exotérica como forma de comunicar algo a sus contemporáneos. Esta obra enseña al lector los entresijos de las sociedades secretas,asi como sus ideas, que corren por el circuito intelectual de las sociedades modernas y que entran en la categoría de lo esotérico,lo mágico y lo mitológico.
