The better angels of our nature: the decline of violence in history and its causes

Steven Pinker shows that violence within and between societies - both murder and warfare – has actually declined from prehistory to today.


Is violence really on the decline? The images of global conflict we see daily on our screens suggest this is an almost obscene claim to be making. Extraordinarily, however, in this riveting talk Steven Pinker shows that violence within and between societies - both murder and warfare – has actually declined from prehistory to today.
