Steven Pinker is an evolutionary psychologist, an expert in human behavior and its evolutionary adaptations. He is the acclaimed author of many books, including The Better Angels of Our Nature–Why Violence Has Declined. His latest, Enlightenment Now, is his finest yet.

Carl Jung has said that we do not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. Part of this process, which is essential to the process of psychological healing that Jung called Individuation, is the necessary acceptance of our full truth, in all of its dimensions.
