Voices of Reason / Darwin Day Lecture: Susan Jacoby
Join CFI-NYC Program Director Susan Jacoby to celebrate the publication of her latest book, The Age of American Unreason , with her first promotional lecture in the New York area. Ms. Jacoby's new book, which picks up in the early 1960s where the historian Richard Hofstadter left off in his classic work, Anti-Intellectualism in American Life , dissects the rise of anti-rationalism in every aspect of American culture and politics during the past 40 years. It is her first book since Freethinkers: A History of American Secularism , published to critical acclaim in 2004.
A booksigning and reception will follow the lecture.
