"How Far Can Darwin Take Us?" Adama Gopnik in Conversation with Steven Pinker, LIVE from the NYPL, May 20, 2009.
Adam Gopnik, author of "Angels & Ages," "A Short Book About Darwin," "Lincoln and Modern Life" and Steven Pinker, author of "The Blank Slate" and many other works, discuss a fundamental question: How far can Darwin take us as a guide to why we are the way we are? Both outspoken appreciators of Darwin, Adam Gopnik and Steven Pinker compare their visions—perhaps complementary, perhaps contrasting—of what Darwins legacy is on the two hundredth anniversary of his birth.
