Steven Pinker on Universities and Free Speech.

Steven Pinker is a highly respected author who has written a number of very interesting books that have received acclaimed reviews. His most recent book, titled ‘Enlightenment Now’ describes how the world is actually a better place than it ever has been.

Please take a few minutes to view this YouTube video where Mr. Pinker talks about universities’ role as idea factories. He also talks about the importance of being able to share and discuss ideas, even if we may not agree with some of them. Without the opportunity to discuss ideas freely, growth will surely be hindered.

One final note: This talk is also a good way to develop your academic listening skills in English!
