In different ways they call into question many of Pinker's methods, assumptions, and conclusions.Steven Pinker: Critical Responses is the fourth volume in the Critical Responses series, which brings together criticisms of famous public intellectuals with a major following on social media, treated seriously but without academic pretensions or trappings.Ray Scott Percival is a philosopher who has taught at Lancaster University and the United Arab Emirates University.
