Steven Pinker will speak about and sign his new book, Enlightenment Now, on Saturday, March 17th at *7:00pm* at *Unity of Boulder* (2855 Folsom St).
About the Book:
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 linguist Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, which play to our psychological biases. Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise, not just in the West, but worldwide. With intellectual depth and literary flair, Enlightenment Now makes the case for reason, science, and humanism: the ideals we need to confront our problems and continue our progress.
