Sinopsis

Una brillante investigación sobre los orígenes de la naturaleza humana del autor de Los mejores ángeles de nuestra naturaleza e iluminación ahora. "Barrido, erudito, muy discutido y divertido de leer ... también muy persuasivo". --Tiempo


Uno de los principales expertos mundiales en lenguaje y mente explora la idea de la naturaleza humana y sus colores morales, emocionales y políticos. Con su ingenio, lucidez y perspicacia característicos, Pinker argumenta que el dogma de que la mente no tiene rasgos innatos, una doctrina sostenida por muchos intelectuales durante el siglo pasado, niega nuestra humanidad común y nuestras preferencias individuales, reemplaza los análisis objetivos de los problemas sociales con sentimientos. -buenos lemas, y distorsiona nuestra comprensión de la política, la violencia, la paternidad y las artes. Inyectando calma y racionalidad en los debates que son notorios por triturar hachas y arrojar barro, Pinker muestra la importancia de un reconocimiento honesto de la naturaleza humana basado en la ciencia y el sentido común.
