Aha!

The Moments of Insight that Shape Our World

William B. Irvine

  • Incorporates psychology, neurology, and evolutionary psychology to take apart what we can learn from a variety of significant aha moments that have had lasting effects.
  • Unlike other books on intellectual breakthroughs that focus on specific areas such as the arts, Irvine's addresses aha moments in a variety of areas including science and religion.
  • Surveys and depicts a variety of important historical aha moments and uses them as a springboard to dive into the neuroscience and the social aftermath of aha moments.
  • Just as Irvine looked into the source of our desires in On Desire, here he investigates where our inspiration comes from when we experience intellectual breakthroughs.
