There are plenty of reasons to be optimistic about the human race: since the 18th century, when the era of reason began, humanity has managed to reduce illness, poverty and violence, even though these regrettable elements still exist today. However, even if they have not yet been completely eradicated, it is undeniable that we live in a world where superstitious, warlike and racist thinking is criticized by the majority. The key to obtaining this optimistic perspective is to put the history of humanity in context, and to be aware of the objective progress that has been achieved. The goal of this book is to defend the ideas that support the modern era and whose intention is, in truth, to continue fighting to build a better world. Steven Pinker presents us with a refreshing and hopeful prose, above all because his arguments are based on real data and statistics that start from "The Enlightenment" as a watershed between a dark humanity and another governed by reason.

About the Author

Los libros son mentores. Pueden guiar lo que hacemos en nuestras vidas y cómo lo hacemos. Muchos de nosotros amamos los libros mientras los leemos y hasta resuenan con nosotros algunas semanas después, pero luego de 2 años no podemos recordar si lo hemos leído o no. Y eso no está bien. Recordamos que en el momento, aquel libro significó mucho para nosotros. ¿Por qué es que tiempo después nos hemos olvidado de todo? Este resumen toma las ideas más importantes del libro original. A muchas personas no les gusta leer, solo quieren saber qué es lo que el libro dice que deben hacer. Si confías en el autor no necesitas de los argumentos. La gran parte de los libros son argumentos de sus ideas, pero muy a menudo no necesitamos argumentos si confiamos en la fuente. Podemos entender la idea de inmediato. Toda esta información está en libro original. Este resumen hace el esfuerzo de reducir las redundancias y convertirlas en instrucciones directo al grano para las personas que no tienen intención de leer el libro en su totalidad. Esta es la misión de Sapiens Editorial. - Books are mentors. Books can guide what we do and our lives. Many of us love books while reading them and maybe they will echo with us a few weeks after but 2 years later we can't remember if we have read it or not. And that's a shame. We remember that at that time, the book meant a lot to us. Why is it that 2 years later we have forgotten everything? That's not good. This summary is taken from the most important themes of the original book. Most people don't like books. People just want to know what the book says they have to do. If you trust the source you don't need the arguments. So much of a book is arguing its points, but often you don't need the argument if you trust the source you can just get the point. This summary takes the effort to distill the blahs into themes for the people who are just not going to read the whole book. All this information is in the original book.
