The Threat To Reason
How the Enlightenment was Hijacked and How We Can Reclaim It
Presentation by Author Dan Hind
An exciting new voice in the vein of Adam Curtis, Dan Hind argues that the threat to reason resides in our state and corporate bureaucracies.
Dan Hind shows how commentators from Christopher Hitchens to Martin Amis have used a false version of the Enlightenment to oppose a modern civilised ‘us’ to a reactionary barbaric ‘them’, so justifying the War on Terror.
He demolishes the claim of fundamentalist atheists, such as Richard Dawkins, that faith is incompatible with reason, He makes a passionate plea to return to Kant’s vision of an Enlightened public realm – for public debate beyond the constraints of the market and state interests. http://www.versobooks.com/
