Please be aware this event is now taking place in the Bookshop

In his new book, The Challenge of Things, A.C. Grayling once again applies his uniquely humanist approach to the dilemmas affecting all of us. In describing and exposing the dark side of things, he also explores ways out of the habits and prejudices of mind that would otherwise trap us forever in the deadly impasses of conflicts of all kinds. Whether he is writing about the First World War and its legacy, free speech, the advantages of an atheist prime minister or the role of science in the arts, his essays are always enlightening, enlivening and hopeful.
