Steven Pinker | Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress
Thursday, March 1
Possessed of “the kind of academic superbrain that can translate otherwise impenetrable statistics into a meaningful narrative of human behaviour” (Sunday Times), cognitive scientist and linguist Steven Pinker is the author of The Better Angels of Our Nature, Pulitzer Prize finalists The Blank Slate and How the Mind Works, and The Sense of Style, a guide to practical and elegant writing. He is a professor of psychology at Harvard University. His latest book, a follow-up to the optimistic The Better Angels of Our Nature, posits that the Enlightenment-era ideals of reason and science are solving some of the world’s toughest problems.
