I’m honored to be profiled today on the Normblog (Norman Geras), who conducts a weekly profile feature on bloggers of note. Norman is Professor Emeritus of Government at the University of Manchester and a founder of the Euston Manifesto Group and one of the principal authors of the manifesto.
There you go: I’m notable. Mom, it’s official!
For those interested in the influences and philosophy of the Currents author, feel free to visit the Normblog profile of Jonathon Narvey. Here’s a taste of my survey:
Who are your intellectual heroes? George Orwell, Charles Darwin, Carl Sagan, Jared Diamond, to name a few.
What are you reading at the moment? The Islamist: Why I joined radical Islam in Britain, what I saw inside and why I left, by Ed Husain.
What is the best novel you’ve ever read? 1984. As relevant as ever.
