Steven Pinker & Rebecca Goldstein on the Virtues of Reason

February 20, 2011

Steven Pinker is a cognitive psychologist at Harvard. His best-selling books include "The Stuff of Thought" and "How the Mind Works." His wife, Rebecca Goldstein, is a philosopher and novelist who is particularly drawn to the great 17th century philosopher, Spinoza. Goldstein's latest book is "36 Arguments for the Existence of God." Both Goldstein and Pinker are atheists, and they talk with Steve Paulson about the debates pitting reason against faith.


dear all - this is a subject i'm deeply interested in, and i think you've done a masterful job of presenting various views - having people like Armstrong and Pinker and Goldstein as your guests is a tribute to the reputation of TTBOOK - thanks -
