Mark Lilla in Conversation with Andrew Sullivan

Expanding on the essays he’s published in the New York Review of Books and the New Republic, Lilla’s seventh book, The Shipwrecked Mind: On Political Reaction, is a rich history of political conservatism. Focusing on the often defining role of reactionaries, Lilla works through the legacy of Hegel and Heidegger as reflected in the thought of Franz Rosenzweig, Eric Voegelin, and Leo Strauss, then advances the theme to consider recent events, such as the January 2015 Paris attacks, tracing their effect on the reception of novels by Houellebecq, Zemmour, and others. Lilla will be in conversation with Andrew Sullivan, former editor of the New Republic and author of The Conservative Soul.
