By: John Hoffman (author)Hardback

1 - 2 weeks availability


This book explores the work of John Gray, controversial and widely read contemporary philosopher. This comprehensive volume links a critique of Gray s views on Marxism, humanism, and the Enlightenment as well as his deep pessimism with his position that attempts to tackle the core of issues like globalization and multiculturalism are hopelessly utopian. Challenging these and other assumptions in Gray s work in a clear and accessible way, John Hoffman focuses his criticism on the philosopher s traditionalist and problematic conception of utopia in the modern world."
