Critic of U.S. reasoning has best seller listen04/04/08 Mitch E. Perry
WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:
Susan Jacoby is the author of the best seller, The Age of American Unreason.
Combining historical analysis with contemporary observation, Jacoby dissects a new American phenomenon, the anti-rationalist landscape extending from pop culture to what she terms "junk thought."
In the first of a multi part interview, we spoke with Susan Jacoby earlier this week, and kidded her about the irony of her book, in which she ridicules American thought.
Stay tuned to the Evening News next week as we continue this interview.
