In the Preface, Pinker talks about how mentioning gentic factors in human activity is a taboo. I do not feel that it is as much a taboo as he makes it out to be, but I agree to a limited extent. Are there differences in the culture of your region with regard to this? Do you think Pinker's statements in the Preface are accurate?
