Enlightenment now: the case for reason, science, humanism and progress

Pinker, Steven, 1954- author

One of the world's greatest contemporary thinkers and author of 'The Better Angels of Our Nature' (described by Bill Gates as 'the most inspiring book I have ever read') shows how to think afresh about the human condition and to meet the challenges that confront us. Is modernity really failing? Or have we failed to appreciate progress and the ideals that make it possible? If you follow the headlines, the world in the 21st century appears to be sinking into chaos, hatred and irrationality. Yet Steven Pinker shows that this is an illusion - a symptom of historical amnesia and statistical fallacies
