Enlightenment Wars: Pinker reflects on his book

One year after his book created a stir he looks back at the criticism. Yes, we have made progress despite the remaining pitfalls we still need to address. Hence the progressive political agenda, which works diligently to bring us up to speed of Enlightenment reason and values. Granted there is a form of reasoning beyond that, but we can't get there until we get up to its prerequisite socio-economic conditions. Hence it's pointless to cry 'but it's not integral' while integrality ignores doing something about that progress, or pretends an integral view will somehow magically fix it if people adopt a model. I'll have more to say about that in my upcoming Integral Review paper.

On a positive note, this integral group is doing something about it at the World Economic Forum.
