"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.

Editorial Reviews

Review

Thompson, an Anglican priest, poses profound, liberating and troubling questions to anyone involved in either Buddhism or Christianity. And he poses the further question: how do we, in integrity, belong to both? (Gavin D'Costa, Professor of Catholic Theology, University of Bristol) On topics ranging from the nature of the self to the nature of the universe, Thompson brings Buddhism and Christianity into a conversation that both prods and enlightens. For Christians, the end result is to be a Christian in a Buddhist way. For many Christians, I suspect, it will be a more satisfying way. I look forward to using this book with my students. (Paul Knitter, Paul Tillich Professor of Theology, World Religions, and Culture, Union Theological Seminary) This book makes a valuable contribution to the emerging debate; it will appeal to scholars and non-scholars alike. (Dr. Rose Drew, Acting Director of the Centre for Inter-Faith Studies, University of Glasgow)

About the Author
