How might the modern, rather than the human, be recovered as a way of looking at a common inheritance? And why is modernity resistant to being recovered?

Amit Chaudhuri (@AmitChaudhuri) is an essayist, literary critic and the author of seven novels.

Robin Archer is the Director of the Ralph Miliband Programme, LSE.

The Ralph Miliband Programme (@RMilibandLSE) is one of LSE's most prestigious lecture series and seeks to advance Ralph Miliband's spirit of free social inquiry.
