NHPR and The Music Hall in Portsmouth present Writers on a New England Stage with author Steven Pinker. He spoke with NHPR's Peter Biello about his latest book, Enlightenment Now: The Case For Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress.

Pinker explores the positive theory that the world is actually getting better - with happier, healthier people living longer lives. Backed with extensive research and illustrated with informational graphs, Pinker outlines the promising forecast on the human condition. 

This interview recorded Jan. 30, 2019 at The Music Hall.
