*BLACKHEATH PHILOSOPHY FORUM*
4pm Saturday April 21, 2018
Second talk in our series for 2018.
*CIVILISATIONAL CHALLENGES AND THE RESHAPING OF POLITICS*
In his 1996 book 'The Clash of Civilizations' the American political
scientist Samuel Huntington argued that cultural and religious
identities will be the main drivers of conflict in the present
century. In a bizarre twist, the rise of identity politics in the
West has led to fundamental schisms within one of the main cultures
identified by Huntington - the post-Enlightenment West. How is this
reshaping political debates in Western societies?
*Speaker:* Peter Baldwin
