Gray’s Anatomy


In this ELP-meeting, John Gray, one of Britain’s leading philosophers, will dissect human nature and hold up a confrontational mirror, based on current developments in geopolitics. Many  of us believe in progress and think of ourselves as moral beings but John Gray argues that human nature is an inherent obstacle to cumulative ethical and political progress. In his view history is not progressive but cyclical. John Gray is the author of bestsellers such as False Dawn: The Delusions of Global Capitalism,  Straw Dogs: Thoughts on Humans and Other Animals and Seven Types of Atheism. Join us for a thought-provoking although not necessarily cheerful start of the day.
