If you don't have free tickets contact: [masked] -hold in will call -or http://www.lindahall.org/ hit on events to Steven Pinker, and hold in will call. Don't want to miss this!Steven Pinker, I asked a dozen speakers if nations will ever stop settling disputes with war or threats of war. Several smirked at the silliness of the question, and all answered no.

But "believe it or not," the Harvard psychologist Steven Pinker proclaims in his new book, The Better Angels of Our Nature, "today we may be living in the most peaceable era in our species? existence."
