The Hedgehog Review Reader: Two Decades of Critical Reflections on Contemporary Culture
Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture, Nov 21, 2019 - Culture - 452 pages
For twenty years, The Hedgehog Review has offered critical reflections on contemporary cuture: how we shape it, how it shapes us. Published three times a year by the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture, the journal draws on the best scholarship and thought from the humanities and social sciences to craft an interdisciplinary approach that illuminates the puzzle, vexations, and dilemmas that characterize the modern predicament. Since 1999, the review has invited major thinkers from various disciplines to address such topics as celebrity culture, work and dignity, science and the moral life, the current crisis of attention, the precarious state of the American Dream, and the ways we think about poverty. To celebrate its twentieth anniversary, many of The Hedgehog Review's finest pieces are now collected in this volume.
