Pinker challenges conventional wisdom that our thoughts and feelings seep into heads from the surrounding culture. This is the assumption behind discussions in dozens of areas, from how to reduce illiteracy and crime and how to lose weight and bring up children. Pinker argues that this all wrong: we are not blank slates, but are born with our characteristics in place - as species, gender and individual.
