From a UPI interview with Steven Pinker, the Peter de Florez Professor of Psychology, whose book "The Blank Slate" is on the Boston bestseller list:
Q: Your long curly hair has been compared to such 1970s rock stars as Peter Frampton, Roger Daltrey and Robert Plant, but you might look more like the 17th century philosopher Spinoza. Whom do you think you look like?
