Description

A. C. Grayling talking about his new book 'Democract and its Crisis'

Winston Churchill described democracy as 'the least bad of all systems.' So it is, when it works. But it has been made to fail - notice those words: 'made to fail' - in at least two of its leading examples in today’s world, the US and the UK. This talk is about how democracy has been made to fail. And it is about how to put it right.

A. C. Grayling is the Master of the New College of the Humanities, London, and its Professor of Philosophy, and the author of over thirty books of philosophy, biography, history of ideas, and essays. He is a columnist for Prospect magazine, and was for a number of years a columnist on the Guardian and Times. He has contributed to many leading newspapers in the UK, US and Australia, and to BBC radios 4, 3, 2 and the World Service, for which he did the annual 'Exchanges at the Frontier' series; and he has often appeared on television. He has twice been a judge on the Booker Prize, in 2015 serving as the Chair of the judging panel. He is a Vice President of the British Humanist Association, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.
