Product description

Review

A passionate defence of the enduring power of human nature ... both life-affirming and deeply satisfying -- Tim Lott, Daily Telegraph, Books of the Year

Brilliant ... enjoyable, informative, clear, humane, New Scientist

If you think the nature-nurture debate has been resolved, you are wrong ... this book is required reading, Literary Review

An original and vital contribution to science and also a rattling good read -- Matt Ridley, Sunday Telegraph

Synopsis

'In a work of outstanding clarity and sheer brilliance Steven Pinker banishes forever fears that a biological understanding of human nature threatens humane values' - Helena Cronin, author of "The Ant and the Peacock". 'A mind blowing, mind opening expose. Pinker's profoundly positive arguments for the compatibility of biology and humanism are unrivaled for their scope and depth and should be mandatory, if disquieting, reading' - Patricia Goldman-Rakic, Past President of the Society for Neuroscience.
