Rationality: What It Is, Why It Seems Scarce, Why It Matters 

Rationality: What It Is,

21 June 2022 - 6:00 am PST

Steven Pinker, experimental psychologist, Harvard professor, joins us to discuss his latest book to celebrate World Humanist Day 2022.

ENORB is hosting a conversation for reflection and connection with Steven Pinker, experimental psychologist, and Johnstone Family Professor in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University. Pinker in interested in all aspects of language and mind, and his research particularly focuses on common knowledge, language acquisition, emotion, the moral sense, rationality, and trends in violence.

In his latest book Rationality: What It Is, Why It Seems Scarce, Why It Matters Pinker attempts to unravel the paradox that, while science has made considerable progress, scepticism towards it is still widespread, leading, for example, to the spread of fake news and conspiracy theories.

The conversation will be moderated by ENORB Director Mark Ereira-Guyer. This online Together for Reflection & Connection session is part of a programme of interfaith dialogue events being planned by ENORB in partnership with many others, including United Religions Initiative Europe, European Network Against Racism and Civil Society Consulting CIC.
