Petaluma - In this elegant assessment of the human condition in the third millennium, cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom. With intellectual depth and literary flair, Enlightenment Now makes the case for reason, science, and humanism. Pinker shows us that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise, not just in the West, but worldwide.
Steven Pinker is the Harvard College Professor of Psychology at Harvard University. A two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist and the winner of many awards for his research, teaching, and books, he has been named one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World Today and Foreign Policy’s 100 Global Thinkers.
