What makes a non-fiction classic? with Jonathan Wolff, Edith Hall, Paul Kelly and Jean Aitchison
Asked to come up with a shortlist of the greatest novels ever, most of us would probably do a reasonable job. What about the classic works of non-fiction? Which books change the way we think and why? What makes us return to a great book again and again? Are there any forgotten classics?
Join Jonathan Wolff (Guardian columnist, broadcaster and Professor of Philosophy at UCL), Edith Hall (broadcaster and Director of the Centre for the Reception of Greece and Rome), Paul Kelly (Professor of Political Philosophy and Head of the Department of Government at the London School of Economics) and Jean Aitchison (Emeritus Rupert Murdoch Professor of Language and Communication at the University of Oxford) to discuss 'what makes a classic'.
