Riassunto: "If I could give each of you a graduation present, it would be this--the most inspiring book I've ever read."
--Bill Gates (May, 2017)

A provocative history of violence--from the New York Times bestselling author of The Stuff of Thought and The Blank Slate and the forthcoming Enlightenment Now (February 2018)

Believe it or not, today we may be living in the most peaceful moment in our species' existence. In his gripping and controversial new work, New York Times bestselling author Steven Pinker shows that despite the ceaseless news about war, crime, and terrorism, violence has actually been in decline over long stretches of history. Exploding myths about humankind's inherent violence and the curse of modernity, this ambitious book continues Pinker's exploration of the essence of human nature, mixing psychology and history to provide a remarkable picture of an increasingly enlightened world.

Review: ."..an extraordinary range of research ... a masterly effort."

" ..."Better Angels" is a monumental achievement. His book should make it much harder for pessimists to cling to their gloomy vision of the future. Whether war is an ancient adaptation or a pernicious cultural infection, we are learning how to overcome it."

Descrizione libro Condizione libro: New. This acclaimed book argues that, contrary to popular belief, humankind has become progressively less violent, over millennia and decades. Can violence really have declined? The images of conflict from around the world we see daily on our screens suggest this is an almost obscene claim to be making. Extraordinarily, however, Pinker shows violence within and between societies -- both murder and warfare -- really has declined from prehistory to today. We are much less likely to die at someone else's hands than ever before. Even the carnage of the last century, when compared to the dangers of pre-state societies, is part of this trend. Debunking both the idea of the 'noble savage' and an over-simplistic Hobbesian notion of a 'nasty, brutish and short' life, Pinker argues that modernity and its cultural institutions are actually making us better people. Brilliant, mind-altering . . . Everyone should read this astonishing book. GUARDIAN. Codice libro della libreria 2695
