Steven Pinker is an experimental psychologist. He is one of the world’s most influential thinkers, and his ideas on life, language and human nature have influenced, inspired and frustrated people for decades. We are delighted that Steven will be coming in-person to the Tortoise Newsroom to talk about his new book: Rationality: What It Is, Why It Seems Scarce, Why It Matters over breakfast this October. In his inimitable style, through relatable examples from mainstream culture, Steven will explain the why we have all become so susceptible to being distracted, manipulated and flummoxed into leaving logic and common sense behind, and what we can do about it.
