    I find it hard to assign a star rating to this book.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Everett suggests dark matter as a more generic term than culture for the type of unspoken knowledge that lies behind language, and provides examples of why this is helpful -- but the reason he chooses this term is because this kind of knowledge is dark and not articulated, so the end result is not in any way an improvement upon structural accounts of language, but merely to bring deficient accounts of language and human cognition up to the common sense standards of cultural studies through a recognition of an unspoken and generic dark aspect to the mind, which lies beyond the reaches even of psychology.

    Only the last chapter of the book dares to look beyond the confines of social sciences, to cast doubt on the possibility of a single human nature -- and here everett's conclusions, while interesting and reasonable, do not resolve all doubts.

    Everett’s ‘dark matter of the mind: the culturally articulated unconscious’ is an ambitious attempt to revisit the ancient empiricist/rationalist debate on the nature knowledge.

    Philosophers like hume, and locke typically studied the disembodied mind receiving sensory data and making sense of that data using minimal innate resources.

    In the early 1970s, noam chomsky was something of a hero to those of us who wanted to make consideration of human biology part of the exploration of human behavior.

    I think this book does that, but i am unable to go as far as everett does in denying the existence of any behavioral constraints imposed by our biological natures.
