Enlightenment Now: A Manifesto for Science, Reason, Humanism, and Progress, Pinker,  Steven
Enlightenment Now: A Manifesto for Science, Reason, Humanism, and Progress
Steven Pinker

Paperback $35.00 - Penguin UK
Philosophy, Politics & Current Affairs - Published: 26/Feb/2018 - ISBN: 9780241337011

Pinker proposes that human progress is the gift of a coherent value system that many of us embrace without even knowing it. He argues that the values of the Enlightenment underlie all our modern institutions, and deserve credit for his claim that we're living longer, healthier, safer, and more affluent lives-not just in the West, but worldwide. Putting the case for a recharged Enlightenment for the 21st century, Pinker shows how, by using our faculties of reason and sympathy to understand the world and to enhance human flourishing, we can tackle problems that inevitably come with being products of evolution in an entropic universe.
