Part oration, part audience exchange – enjoy an evening with this extraordinary philosopher and humanist for an energising perspective on democracy and its crisis, inspired by recent world events in the UK, US, Middle East, Russia and Latin America. Democracy was described by Winston Churchill as ‘the least bad of all systems.’ So it is, when it works. But it is being made to fail – notice those words: ‘made to fail’ – in some of its leading examples in today’s world.
Grayling investigates how democracy is being made to fail and provides some positive insights into how to put it right. A.C. Grayling will be signing copies of Democracy and its Crisis on the evening. Cost: Full $35, Concession $30 (plus booking transaction fee)
