"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

From the Back Cover

The Picture of Dorian Gray is considered one of the last works of classic gothic horror fiction with a strong Faustian theme.
It deals with the artistic movement of the decadents, and homosexuality, both of which caused controversy when the book was published. However, in recent times, the book has been regarded as one of the modern classics of Western literature.
Basil Hallward, an artist, meets Dorian Gray and paints his portrait. The artist is so infatuated with Dorian's beauty that he begins to believe it is the reason for his quality of art. Dorian becomes convinced that beauty is all-important and wishes his portrait could age instead of him. Beware of what you have wished for! Each time Dorian commits a sin his portrait ages, showing him what is happening to his soul.

About the Author

Oscar Wilde nació en Dublín en 1854. Estudió en el Trinity College de su ciudad y, más tarde, en Oxford, donde destacó en el estudio de los clásicos y como poeta. Fue allí donde recogió la influencia de los estetas Walter Pater y John Ruskin. Su peculiar indumentaria y su carácter excéntrico le convirtieron en blanco de sátiras y bromas, pero su ingenio y su talento le hicieron ganar numerosos admiradores. Tras un primer libro de poemas y una obra teatral, Vera o los nihilistas (1882), que se estrenó en Nueva York durante uno de sus viajes como conferenciante, el autor se instaló en Londres. En 1884 se casó con Constance Lloyd, una mujer irlandesa adinerada, con la que tuvo dos hijos. Desde entonces se dedicó por completo a la literatura. En 1895, en la cima de su carrera tras el estreno en 1890 de su polémica obra de teatro El retrato de Dorian Gray, que se publicaría como novela un año después, y tras el éxito de las comedias Una mujer sin importancia (1893), Un marido ideal (1895) y La importancia de llamarse Ernesto (1895), Wilde se convirtió en la víctima de las iras de la convencional sociedad victoriana al ser acusado de sodomía por el padre de lord Alfred Douglas. Hallado culpable en el juicio, fue encarcelado en Reading y condenado a trabajos forzados durante dos años. La prisión lo arruinó material y espiritualmente, y al salir se instaló en París, donde murió en 1900. Además de sus obras ya citadas, Wilde publicó tres colecciones de cuentos escritas para sus hijos: El príncipe feliz (1888), El crimen de lord Arthur Savile (1891) y La casa de las granadas (1892); un poderoso poema escrito en la cárcel, La balada de la cárcel de Reading (1898), y una extensa epístola confesional, De profundis (1895), publicada tras su muerte. Maestro también de la crítica y el ensayo, sus obras tienen una vigencia universal.
