The Decadent Society

February 25 @ 5:00 pm

Book signing — 5:00 p.m.

Lecture — 5:30 p.m.

Today the Western world seems to be in crisis. But beneath our social media frenzy and reality-television politics, the deeper reality is one of drift, repetition, and dead ends.

On the release date of his latest book, join New York Times columnist and IHE Media Fellow Ross Douthat for a discussion of our decadence — of what happens when a rich and powerful society ceases advancing, how long our era of stagnation and repetition might last, and how, whether in renaissance or catastrophe, our decadence might ultimately end.

RSVP via the button above.
