What do we know about the world, the past and ourselves? Just in the course of the last century and a half, there have been spectacular advances in our enquiries into these matters. Using the most general labels for them we call them science, history and psychology respectively. What has been achieved in them and where is our new knowledge leading us?
Grayling is the founder and principal of New College of the Humanities at Northeastern University, its professor of philosophy and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
