The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined

October 12, 2011

Steven Pinker is the Harvard College Professor and Johnstone Family Professor of Psychology at Harvard University.

Drawing from psychology, history, brain science, war studies, game theory, complexity theory, and popular culture, Dr. Pinker explores where violence comes from, why it has been so common over the course of history, and how we have been slowly bringing it under control.
