The Challenge of Things

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 discussing 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 insights are always enlightening, enlivening and hopeful. He talks about finding a way through these conflicts.
