Steven Pinker is the author of worldwide bestsellers on language, mind, and human nature. In his book "The sense of style" (which appeared in Dutch as 'Gevoel voor stijl'), he draws on the latest research in linguistics and cognitive science, replacing the recycled dogma of previous style guides with reason and evidence. He shows why style still matters: in communicating effectively, in enhancing the spread of ideas, in earning a reader's trust and, not least, in adding beauty to the world.
After his presentation, professor Steven Pinker is available online to answer your questions. Hadassah de Boer is moderating.
