An even-handed review of Steven Pinker's new book, "Enlightenment Now: The Case For Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress".

From the review:

"Of course, there are some unenlightened right-wingers, particularly those yearning for what they remember as a better time in the past. They won't find that happy yesteryear in Pinker's graphs, but they and those gloomy left-wing intellectuals could all profit from this book. Some of them might even feel better."
