The modern denial of human nature confuses our understanding of talent and how to develop it.

Steven Pinker, one of the words leading Psychologists, discusses how key aspects of human nature have been dismissed by popular narratives over the course of the 20th Century in what he calls the Modern Denial of Human Nature (2002).
