Re: Tracking Pinker - without the book:
Thank you for the welcome. My only contact with Pinker's work has been through some of his video conferences and stuff I've picked up from the 'net - it's likely to remain so as here in Argentina book orders carry about two months delay and $20 or $30 US worth of postage. His presentations are done with flair and style and the little I've seen of his writing also - however I'm skeptical about his approach: If it is grounded on Noam Chomsky (not one of my favourites) and E O Wilson, I think I'll just watch the debate here for now, and make totally inappropriate comments from time to time. I am hoping he has something new to dish up though.
