Dignity Deathmatch, Round Two 

It's time for round two of the "dignity debate." The latest:

  • BioEdge says Pinker is "no philosopher."
  • Stuart Rennie asks if autonomy is in any "better conceptual shape" than dignity.
  • Noah Millman gives "one cheer for Pinker even if he is being a jerk." (See too the interesting comment thread.)
  • Alan Jacobs has some fun with Pinker's notion that the sciences and the humanities, "like Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort,...are predestined to eternal enmity: one of them must destroy the other."
