Paul Mason

A Radical Defence of the Human Being

Event  27 
Venue: Kells Theatre - Eirgrid Stage
As a TV journalist, author and public intellectual Paul Mason’s voice has offered both rigorous analysis and hope for a more equitable future. His 2015 work PostCapitalism was hailed by Naomi Klein as “an original, engaging, and bracinglyarticulated vision of real alternatives”. His latest work, the forward-thinking Clear Bright Future: A Radical Defence of the Human Being recognises the multiple threats of the rise of authoritarian politics; the destruction of verifiable truth; the onset of Artificial Intelligence; and the sense of fatalism which has left millions susceptible to the mythologies of the new right. Paul will be familiar to TV viewers for his work as Economics Editor on BBC2’s Newsnight and Channel Four News since 2001. He will be in conversation with Myles Dungan.
Price €10.00
