From the web: “Unenlightened thinking: Steven Pinker’s embarrassing new book is a feeble sermon for rattled liberals”

To think of this book as any kind of scholarly exercise is a category mistake. The purpose of Pinker’s laborious work is to reassure liberals that they are on “the right side of history”. “Opposing reason is, by definition, unreasonable.” Steven Pinker is fond of definitions.
