Steven Pinker: Human Nature in 2013

As part of the The World in . . . Festival (2013 version), Harvard psychologist is interviewed by Lane Greene from The Economist, sponsors of the event. Here is a little summary of the Festival:
Every year, the World in… Festival is timed with the release of The Economist’s annual World in… publication, a collection of trends and predictions about the year ahead. 
Now in its 27th year, The World in… provides readers with a unique global perspective on the upcoming year, across the spheres of business, finance and economics, technology, sport, media, arts, culture and beyond. Through a series of lively discussions, performances and debates with Economist editors and distinguished guests, The World in 2013 Festival brings the publication to life. 
The World in... Festival is a multi-day experience, including an evening of intellectual entertainment (Thursday) and a full-day programme (Saturday). The wide range of topics reflect the depth and breadth of The Economist and The World In…publication, as well as the themes most relevant to the upcoming year. The World in… Festival is our reader event and is designed for anyone who enjoys the analysis and prognostications found in The Economist
