Julian Baggini: Is Radical Politics Still Possible?--Sunday, January 30, 6:00 pm, CFI Indiana, 350 Canal Walk, Suite A, Indianapolis.

Francis Fukuyama may have been premature in heralding the end of history, but many people agree that politics in western democracies has entered a post-ideological phase. Everyone accepts that society should be run as a democratic, regulated market economy, and disagreements are all about the details. Or do they? To what extent is this diagnosis correct? And even if it is, does that mean that radical politics is no longer possible? In this talk, the British philosopher and author Julian Baggini will suggest that there is plenty of room for radicalism -- even if the grand ideological debates of the past have run their course.

Julian Baggini is a British philosopher and the author of several books about philosophy written for a general audience, including The Pig that Wants to be Eaten and 99 other thought experiments , and Atheism: A Very Short Introduction. He is co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Philosophers' Magazine , and contributes to a variety of newspapers, magazines and BBC radio. He was awarded his PhD from University College London.

A $5.00-$10.00 donation to help cover expenses would be appreciated.
