Steven Pinker Enlightenment Now


Friday, March 16, 2018 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

This event has expired.

Harvard University psychology professor and Pulitzer Prize finalist Steven Pinker shares the follow-up to his ground-breaking book The Better Angels of Our Nature with Enlightenment Now. In this new title, Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, which play to our psychological biases. Instead, follow the data: in 75 jaw-dropping graphs, he shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise worldwide. This progress is not the result of some cosmic force. It is a gift of the Enlightenment: the conviction that reason and science can enhance human flourishing. Tickets are $35.00 and available at
