Steve Heigham

Msc in Evolutionary Psychology

Steven Pinker, as one of the world’s leading thinkers, and a great proponent of evolutionary theory, has in his last two major works taken a bolder step in showing just how much we have progressed and overcome the many pitfalls of natural selection, to become a wiser and better species. Despite the many detractors he has had to face in this endeavour, he puts across a very convincing case, and develops a challenging argument about how we can move forward in answering the many problems that we currently face.
