30569 Appreciating the Enlightenment - EARLY START DATE - New   NEW!

Careful research on how the world can—and is—getting better: Steven Pinker’s new book, Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress (Viking, 2018), continues in great detail his explorations of the unique progress that began with the Enlightenment. Since change is part of our human history, each generation must now rediscover, and expand, the evidence-based science and humanist values that transformed the past 300 years. We will read and review this essential new book.
