ID : 786   
« back to classes page
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? 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 lurid headlines and prophecies of doom--and instead follow the data. Pinker’s new book, Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress (Viking, 2018) is referred to by Bill Gates as, “My new favorite book of all time.” Please join us to see why. We can all benefit from a little enlightenment.
