Human Progress - in datacards
Pinker's "Enlightenment now" is the tale of how the human condition has improved throughout the decades. By virtue of the ideas of the Enlightenment, we as a species have undergone an unstoppable process of improvement of our condition, from life expectancy and health to rising democratisation and prosperity. Much is still to be done, but it's undeniable that (despite what pessimists may say) we live in the best era that ever existed. Pinker explores this theme in detail, describing results with data. Here I reproduce some of the findings by using the same data. On top of the book's narrative, I also created cards from other sources, still on the same theme.
