The political philosopher John Gray is the former Professor of European Thought at the London School of Economics. His best-selling books include Straw Dogs, False Dawn: The delusions of global capitalism, and Black Mass: Apocalyptic religion and the death of utopia.
His new book, Seven Types of Atheism, is published by Allen Lane. We asked Nick Spencer, research director at Theos and author of Atheists: The origin of the species (Bloomsbury), to sit down with John Gray to talk about the new book, and about his philosophical and political journey.
The conversation was recorded in a hotel bar in central London, so there is some background noise.
