Susan Jacoby

Susan Jacoby, renowned author of Freethinkers, discusses her latest book, The Age of American Unreason. Combining historical analysis with contemporary observation, Jacoby dissects a new American cultural phenomenon-one that is at odds with our heritage of reason, secular knowledge and science. In this provocative book, Jacoby explains why it is critical to understand how a departure from reason has and will hurt individuals and our country.
