Day 2 – Pankaj Mishra: Welcome to the Age of Anger

FGLF 2018 Participant - Author Pankaj Mishra

In this solo performance, the brilliant intellectual, writer and essayist Pankaj Mishra presented the argument of his groundbreaking 2017 publication Age of Anger: A History of the Present. Mishra argues that the Enlightenment ideals of rational self-interest and humanism are no longer sufficient to explain the world in which we live. Instead, we must look to the wisdom of a number of post-Enlightenment thinkers in an effort to understand that although times may have changed, human nature has not.
