Apocalypse [Audio]
Speaker(s): Dr Franklin Ginn, Dr Suzanne Hobson, Professor John Milbank, Florian Mussgnug | Within our apparently secular, globalised, and technology-driven world, we are witnessing a return of apocalyptic thinking. What are its current incarnations and why have they emerged now? Or did apocalyptic thinking ever really leave us? Is it inescapably linked to our belief in progress?
