Abstract:

Named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine in 2004, Linguist Steven Pinker questions the very nature of our thoughts, including the way we use words, how we learn, and how we relate to others. In his best-selling books The Language Instinct, How the Mind Works, and The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature he argues that humans have evolved to share a faculty for language and that we aren't born with blank slates to be shaped entirely by our parents and environment. In this exciting TEDTalk, Pinker discusses his book The Stuff of Thought by examining language and how it expresses what goes on in our minds and how the words we choose communicate much more that we realize. A streaming videorecording.
