The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature
by Steven Pinker

M.I.T. psychology professor Steven Pinker dives headlong into the "nature vs. nurture" debate with his book The Blank Slate. He argues that instead of being born with a blank slate which will be filled by experience and nurturing, we are actually born with genetic predispositions to behavior. At the same time, he believes that given the right conditions, evolution can eventually breed out unfavorable behaviors. Whether you agree or disagree with his views, he presents them in a manner the Washington Post calls "clear, well argued, fair, learned, tough, witty, humane, stimulating."
