John Gray Interview

Thanks to Euan Semple for the link to this Independent interview with John Gray, plugging his latest book “Gray’s Anatomy”.

I find the fact that he “predicted” the recent financial crisis utterly irrelevant, but the pragmatic political view of philosophy without fundamental isms and ideologies is refreshing. Interestingly, I was just reading a piece from 2006 by Matt Kundert in defense of isms. No-one likes to be pigeonholed within an ism, but like any classification it serves a purpose, which has nothing to do with being in any sense fundamental nor even clearly delineated or defined.
