Episode 2782: John Gray – The New Leviathans: Thoughts After Liberalism.
Our guest today is political philosopher and author John Gray who joins us to talk about his new book, The New Leviathans: Thoughts After Liberalism.
Does Progress exist? Are things the same as they always have been, but faster? Dead and dying civilizations. If not hope then what? And is supposed repression of thought another sign of advancing barbarism.
We also discuss the life and work of an oft overlooked pioneer of psychoanalysis Sabina Spielrein. Murdered along with her daughters, in 1942, by the Nazis in Zmiyevskaia ravine, Rostov.
