Description - The Blank Slate by Steven Pinker

Steven Pinker's landmark defence of human nature

Recently many people have assumed that we are blank slates shaped by our environment. But this denies the heart of our being- human nature. Violence is not just a product of society; male and female minds are different; the genes we give our children shape them more than our parenting practices. To acknowledge our innate abilities, Pinker shows, is not to condone inequality, but to understand the very foundations of humanity.
