Do Humankind's Best Days Lie Ahead?, Paperback

Do Humankind's Best Days Lie Ahead? Paperback


Four of the world's most renowned thinkers take on one of the biggest debates of the modern era. "It's just a brute fact that we don't throw virgins into volcanoes any more.

We don't execute people for shoplifting a cabbage. And we used to." - Steven Pinker "The idea that because things have gotten better in the past they will continue to do so in the future is a fallacy I would have thought confined to the lower reaches of Wall Street." - Malcolm Gladwell
