Ethics Institute Dorsett lecture with Steven Pinker

STEVEN PINKER asks the big questions about human progress—and sets out, in public, to answer them.

Monday, April 11, 2022
4:30pm – 6:00pm
Moore Theater, Hopkins Center for the Arts
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Lectures & Seminars

In Enlightenment Now, Pinker argues that, despite the headlines, the world is getting better, not worse.  In optimistic keynotes, full of sharp wit, common sense, and dazzling argumentation, Pinker makes the case for reason, science, and humanism.  These enlightenment ideals, in the face of tribalism, authoritarianism, and other modern dangers to democracy, are worth celebrating and protecting.
