"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

About the Author
The Temple of Diana is dedicated to the Continental European Craft, with a particular focus upon Southern European Mysteries and Hermeticism/Neoplatonism as taught during the Italian Reinassance. While the Temple's official pantheon encompasses a Southern Itallic framework, individual members are encouraged to work with the Deities (generally European or Middle Eastern) that call to them. Our foci as an organization is service to the Deathless Ones, to humanity, and to ourselves. How these objectives are obtained varies - from Temple specific projects to individual endeavors. Our Craft priesthood is a 24/7 vocation. Anything less is viewed as counterproductive! And yet we also have fun - we laugh a lot, usually at our own expense, lest we take ourselves too seriously. The Temple of Diana is in strategic alliance with Our Lady and Our Lord of the Trinacrian Rose, meaning we have some board members who are members of the later organisation, yet the Temple of Diana and Our Lord and Lady of the Triancrian Rose Church are two seperate and individual organisations with their own Incorporations. There is some cross-over between membership and clergy, and the two organizations maintain close family ties to each other. It also maintains links to the Holy Order of Triformis (HOOT) - a ceremonial order centered on Hellenistic theurgy and Hermetic philosophy founded by elders of various Greek, Itallic, and Sicilian Craft lines. The Temple of Diana also maintains relationship with HOOT's public ministry (the Stars of Elysium) and the Hounds of Artemis coven, primarily because of of our HP's has dual roles within all three. The Temple's "Outer Court", the Ordo Sanctus Falcona Templum di Diana Triformis (Order of the Sacred Hawk / Temple of Diana Triformis), called the Ordo for short, maintains a presence on the web for networking, education, and outreach. It is also a real world group, focused in Puerto Rico. Temple of Diana, Inc. is a Non-Profit, 501 (c) 3, Religious Organization Incorporated in the Commonwealth of Mass.
