About this Event:

Political philosopher Professor John Gray draws on memoirs, poems, fiction and philosophy to make us re-imagine our place in the world in this powerful sequel to his bestselling Straw Dogs. He asks what happens to us when we starve, when we fight and when we are imprisoned? Gray sees an existence that we decorate with myths and ideas, and in which we twist and turn to avoid acknowledging that we too are animals.

Gray has been professor of politics at the University of Oxford and has taught at Harvard, Yale and the London School of Economics. He is now a full-time writer and his works include False Dawn: The Delusions of Global Capitalism; Straw Dogs: Thoughts on Humans and Other Animals; and The Immortalisation Commission: The Strange Quest to Cheat Death.
