Humans in Dark Times
Brad Evans, Natasha Lennard, Simon Critchley, George Yancy, Zygmunt Bauman
There are a number of anthologies on violence, but none exist as presented in this conversational interview format, which provides a meaningful and sophisticated introduction into the most cutting-edge thinking on the problem of violence in the contemporary world.
The market for this book includes readers of the New York Times, as half of these conversations were first published in their online philosophy column "The Stone." The other half come from the Los Angeles Review of Books.
The issue of violence cuts across many disciplines of study and inquiry, and this book connects them through the eclectic range of thinkers, filmmakers, artists, and theorists with whom Evans and Lennard speak.
Brad Evans has gained more public recognition in the U.S. given his editorial work on the New York Times's "The Stone."
Natasha Lennard's work is well-known as she regularly contributes to Esquire, The Intercept, The Nation, and the New York Times.
