The novelist, historian and translator Philipp Blom, educated in Vienna and Oxford, has published nine books in Spanish, the last of which is El gran teatro del mundo (Das grosse welttheater). In this new long essay Blom examines the idea that is so common nowadays of “the crisis of the present”: feelings of discouragement with the idea of progress, the threats of populism and the ecological collapse, a lack of the momentum the brought enlightened ideas, the urgent need to reinvent ourselves and to find new paradigms. This lucid, perceptive text deals with our past, our present and the possibilities that exist in the future. In conversation with Misha Glenny.

Simultaneous translation from English to Spanish available
