Parent? Learning professional? Watch this...

Stephen Pinker is that rare beast - an academic at the top of his field who knows that it is important to get his message out into the real world. His books are great but if you don't have the time, this short video is a great and succinct summary of his thoughts on the mind.

Pinker has a go, based on solid research, at professionals who labour under the illusion that the mind is a blank slate (many learning professionals) and parents who think that they have the power to shape their kids.
