Почему насилия в мире стало меньше
Steven Pinker - 2012-09-25 (впервые опубликовано в 2010)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Сталкиваясь с ужасами нашего времени — войнами, терроризмом, насилием, — мы говорим «Куда катится мир?!», не задумываясь о жестокости ушедших эпох. На самом деле в прошлом все было гораздо страшнее, утверждает Пинкер. За примерами далеко ходить не надо, достаточно вспомнить библейские сюжеты. Ученый методично доказывает, что насилие неуклонно снижается. Исследуя мифы о неизбежно «злой» и жестокой природе человеческого существа, он объясняет с точки зрения эволюционной психологии, почему люди делают свой мир все более свободным от насилия и зла. Может быть, мы не так уж и плохи. Особенности * Бестселер The New York Times профессора психологии Гарвардского университета, дважды лауреата Пулитцеровской премии. * Стивен Пинкер включен в список 100 наиболее влиятельных ученых и мыслителей журналом Foreign Policy и в число 100 наиболее влиятельных людей современности журналом Time.
