If you think the world is falling apart, Steven Pinker is here to tell you it isn’t. Amid the relentless negativity, his case for optimism has never been more compelling. Let’s take a walk on the bright side with one of the most provocative and original thinkers of the 21st century. Harvard professor Steven Pinker, the renowned psychologist, has won numerous prizes for his research, teaching, and nine books, including The Language Instinct, How the Mind Works, The Blank Slate, and The Better Angels of Our Nature. He is a two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist, a Humanist of the Year, a recipient of nine honorary doctorates, and one of Foreign Policy’s “World’s Top 100 Public Intellectuals” and Time’s “100 Most Influential People in the World Today.”
We are delighted to host him at Dalkey in this very special one off event.
