Terry Eagleton

Radical

Hay Festival 2018, 

The literary critic, famed for his wit and acute interpretations, explores the themes of his two spring publications. Radical Sacrifice revaluates the idea of sacrifice as purposed in theology and philosophy, reclaiming the act as radical politics. The re-publication of Why Marx Was Right examines the philosopher’s core ideas in the context of capitalism’s crises and communism’s collapse. Chaired by Dai Smith.
