The age of America Unreason: Dumbing Down and the Future of Democracy

£8.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Combining historical analysis with far-reaching contemporary observation, Susan Jacoby dissects a modern America at odds with its heritage of Enlightenment reason and with 21st century knowledge and science. A thoroughly readable account of how we got to here, and how to get out, Jacoby's insights are as relevant to U.K. and European politics. Richard Dawkins' review talks of "her elevated vision of the way our culture could be - and is not."
