CANCELLED - Routledge Presents: Great Minds Don’t Think Alike

Wednesday 18th September 2013 6:30pm - 7:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event


Big data is getting bigger all the time, and allowing us to make ever more precise models for predicting social and economic patterns. But will such evidence-based thinking spell the death of the grand visionary theories that have characterised the history of the social sciences? Discussing the way we think now, and how we begin to answer the big questions of our century are Jane O'Grady (The Guardian), philosopher Edward Harcourt (Oxford University) (below left) and Sociologist and cultural commentator Tiffany Jenkins (below, right).

This event celebrates Routledge's new Great Minds series -- ten of the most controversial and illuminating books released to mark their hundred-year heritage of shaping intellectual life through publishing the boldest minds of the age.

PLUS - One lucky attendee will win a complete set of the Routledge Great Minds series - worth £120!
The winner will be selected at random at the end of the event.

Edward H Tiffany Jenkins

Venue: The Gallery at Foyles Charing Cross Road
