Lets put him and Jordan Peterson in a bear baiting pit and let them fight over the last piece of pudding šŸ˜›


I like listening to this man. Easier than reading his books.


Iā€™m reading Enlightenment Now. Pinker does a wonderful job of presenting complex ideas in a very understandable way. Highly recommended.


There is plenty to criticize around. Many things could be done better and acknowledging error is the first step to correct it. But the fixes proposed by some critics too often would do away with the framework of Enlightenment-inspired ideas that make criticism an effective tool of progress. Pinker is a forceful advocate for those ideas, which he synthesizes into a reliance on reason, science, humanism, and human progress.
