EXCERPT:

“It’s not as if habits of deep reflection, thorough research and rigorous reasoning ever came naturally to people. They must be acquired in special institutions, which we call universities, and maintained with constant upkeep, which we call analysis, criticism and debate.”

Steven Pinker, a professor of psychology at Harvard, is the author of “The Stuff of Thought.”
