Steven Pinker is an evolutionary psychologist, an expert in human behavior and its evolutionary adaptations. He is the acclaimed author of many books, including The Better Angels of Our Nature–Why Violence Has Declined. His latest, Enlightenment Now, is his finest yet. He argues compellingly that the key values, which animated the 18th-century Enlightenment – humanism, reason, and science – are still active (and even dominant) in human culture.
