Poetry, poetics, with occasional forays into other arts and politics

Here's one of the most interesting articles I've read in years: Steven Pinker's "The Moral Instinct". Raises all sorts of questions on the slippery basis of our moral judgments; also delineates some brilliant criteria to evaluate the same. Don't miss, also, the letters in response to the article by the likes of Peter Singer and others.
