Over at Uncommon Descent, Denyse O'Leary has some fun with Stephen Pinkers "Dangerous Questions." Pinker comes across as an Establishment Guy desperately trying to look dangerous by cutting up his milk toast in a new pattern. After all, he packs his dangerous essay with no less than 22 dangerous questions. Did you get that? 22! That's not SuperDanger, that's SuperDuperDanger. And just how dangerous is this danger-packed essay? It's signed as follows: Steven Pinker is professor in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University. His new book, The Stuff of Thought, will be out in September. Sorry Dr. Establishment, but if any of those questions were truly dangerous, you wouldn't be signing your name to them.
