Pinker on the Stand

April 8th, 2003 · No Comments

Pinker on the stand – a transcript of talk and discussion given by Steve Pinker on ‘Human Nature and Its Future’.

I can’t say I learned anything particularly new from the talk itself, but Pinker receives a real roasting in the discussion about the concepts of criminal justice and what implications our new understanding of human biology holds for it. I think the transcript loses some of the nuances of the meeting but it’s still a very good read (via Arts & Letters Daily, a site that I will be keeping a close eye on from now on).
