Social Justice Book Club

Tuesday, May 21, 2019 - 6:30pm

For those interested, the next Social Justice Book Club meeting is Tuesday May 21, 6:30-8pm at NECIC. The book is "Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress" by Canadian-American cognitive scientist Steven Pinker.

About the book:
 "Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? In this elegant assessment of the human condition in the third millennium, cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, which play to our psychological biases. Instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise, not just in the West, but worldwide."
