John Gray was Professor of European Thought at the LSE, a Fellow of Jesus College, Oxford and visiting Professor at Harvard and Yale. In 2007 he retired from academic life to take up full-time writing.
In this talk Professor Gray will consider how ideas and attitudes changed in Britain in the Sixties. Suggesting that an essentially Edwardian culture broke down in the early years of that decade, he will explore how a succession of scandals and political and cultural changes set Britain on a path to its present condition today.
