This talk will be based on reflections on the book “Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism and Progress” by Steven Pinker. Mr. Manga will expand on the key claims made by Pinker, but also on some of his limitations and assumptions about progress, sustainability, capitalism, and the role of evolutionary agents/leaders.
Manuel Manga is co-founder of the Institute for Evolutionary Leadership (www.evoleadinstitute.com) based in Oakland, California, whose purpose is to contribute toward a just, sustainable, and flourishing world. He is a consultant, and executive coach, and has worked in the United States, Africa, Asia, Canada, Latin America, Europe and India.
After the Forum, please join us for a special “Festive Aviation Day Lunch on Orville Wright’s 147th Birthday!” lunch at 12:30pm. In addition to our usual great lunch, members will donate special things, including ice cream, to make it truly festive. The lunch is complimentary for first-time visitors and students.
