Is Radical Politics Still Possible? - New York, 12 January

Francis Fukuyama may have been prermature in heralding the end of history, but many people agree that politic in western democracies has entered a post-ideological phase. Everyone accepts that society should be run as a democratic, regulated market economy, and disagreements are all about the details. To what extent is this diagnosis correct? And even if it is, does that mean that radical politics is no longer possible? In this talk, Julian Baggini will suggest that there is plenty of room for radicalism, even if the grand ideological debates of the past have run their course.
Talk starts at 7 at University Settlement (in Speyer Hall) 184 Eldridge St. at Rivington St. Full details here.
