My guest today is Steven Pinker, a Canadian-born American cognitive scientist, psychologist, linguist, and popular science author. He is Johnstone Family Professor in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University, and is known for his advocacy of evolutionary psychology and the computational theory of mind. He covers phenomena that have traditionally not been looked at scientifically such as: visual perception, war and peace, and differences in writing styles. He has authored numerous books with his most recent being, “The Sense of Style.”

The topics are his books The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person’s Guide to Writing in the 21st Century and Blank Slate.

In this episode of Trend Following Radio we discuss:

  • Evolution
  • Natural selection
  • War statistics
  • Cognitive science
  • Evolutionary psychology

“I don’t think there is any single procedure called the scientific method. I think that science just is the attempt to explain phenomena using explanations that you can show to the best of your ability are true.” – Steven Pinker
