The author of The Happiness of Pursuit and Computing the Mind, Edelman was born in the USSR and emigrated to Israel, where he earned a bachelor's degree at Technion and a master's and Ph.D. at Weizmann Institute of Science. He is interested in all aspects of cognition and has written dozens of scholarly publications in theoretical neuroscience, cognitive psychology, and artificial intelligence.
