Steven Pinker, Professor of Psychology at Harvard University, talks to Diego del Alcázar y Silvela, founder of IE University, about human progress and its causes, especially in the current context marked by the Covid-19 crisis, misinformation, the influence of social networks and populism, among other issues. Pinker reminds us that progress is possible but not guaranteed or inevitable; progress happens when we identify problems and work out how to solve them.
