Britain’s Nervous Breakdown: What is Actually Happening?

With Will Davies, and Jeremy Gilbert   


What on Earth is happening to British politics, culture and society? What is at the root of the present crisis of political representation and objective knowledge? Should we care about the crisis of liberal democracy? Is the internet a powerful new tool of democratic engagement, or is it just driving everyone crazy? What are the causes of Brexit and what are the causes of Boris Johnson?

These and other topics are discussed by Will Davies, author of The Limits of Neoliberalism and Nervous States: How Feeling Took Over the World and Jeremy Gilbert, author of Common Ground: Democracy and Collectivity in an Age of Individualism.
