[audio] Conversation on the Rise and Fall of Socialist Humanism – with Barbara Epstein, Kevin Anderson, and Sasha Lilley

Socialist humanist ideas were broadly championed by key thinkers in the mid-20th century, like E.P. Thompson, Fanon, Marcuse, and Fromm, but have now disappeared seemingly without a trace. Barbara Epstein and Kevin Anderson explore socialist humanism’s rise and fall, in part as postmodernism took center stage as an ideological current. They argue that the left is not better off without it.
