Despite the onslaught of violence in the news, we are living in the most peaceful era in our species' existence. What has caused the this turn of events in the recent human past? Psychologist Steven Pinker of Harvard University provides remarkable insights into the history of violence, human nature, and their combined implications for our everyday lives. Pinker argues that the decline of human violence is perhaps the most significant and yet least appreciated development in the history of our species.
