Details About the talk

Steven Pinker acompanha o declínio da violência desde os tempos bíblicos até ao presente, e argumenta que, embora possa parecer ilógico e até mesmo obsceno se considerarmos a situação no Iraque e em Darfur, nós estamos a viver o período mais pacífico de toda a existência da nossa espécie.
