He’s keen on modern neuroscientific theories of mind and brain, human evolution, and cognitive hacking. He’s an advocate of hiking with trekking poles and likes to explain why walking with them is more beneficial and effective than going without them.

How to get on with Petr?

Once in a while, a night spent out in a companion of good friends, good beer and insightful dialogues about culture memes, books (especially the book Asfalt from Štěpán Kopřiva) and movies will always cheer him up. Be honest with him, stay away from hypocrisy, and you’ll get his full support.
