Sheldon Wolin: Can Capitalism and Democracy Coexist?
Thursday, May 11, 7:0–09:00 pm

Journalist Chris Hedges interviewed Sheldon Wolin shortly before Wolin died in 2015. This engaging conversation by two extraordinarily well-read, critical thinkers explores how we've arrived at inverted totalitarianism as well as opportunities for restoring democracy. At 92, Wolin's mind is crisp and sharp. His thoughts are clear, incisive and illuminating. This is a helpful discussion that will inspire you to read and re-read Sheldon Wolin.
