Steven Pinker

Steven Pinker

Talks/Lectures
When you read the news today, it can look like the world is falling apart. Civil unrest. Terrorism. Inequality. Environmental degradation. Poverty. But is that truly the case? Absolutely not, says two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Steven Pinker, one of the world’s leading cognitive scientists. The author of award-winning books including "The Language Instinct," "How the Mind Works" and "The Better Angels of Our Nature," Pinker will argue on behalf of human progress: People are living longer, healthier, freer and happier lives, “a powerful case that the main line of history has been, since the Enlightenment, one of improvement.” (Scientific American).
