The Politics of Catastrophe: Joan Braune

What do politics have to do with the end of the world? UK Philosophy graduate Joan Braune recently finished her dissertation, which is focused on Erich Fromm's role - and break from - the Frankfurt School. She thinks that the connection between political renewal and dreams of catastrophe are detrimental to progress. Braune discussed some of her research at Villanova University's April 2013 conference, "Apocalyptic Politics: Framing the Present," and shares her research in this podcast.
