Listen to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Stephen Pinker discuss his
book, "The Blank Slate" (requires free RealPlayer). During the recent lecture,
Pinker argued for nature over nurture. Genetic, evolutionary and neurobiology
can explain much of human behavior, he said--humans are not born as blank
slates, without talents or temperaments.
