'The most prescient of British public intellectuals' Pankaj Mishra, Financial Times

Updated with a new foreword and two new chapters of John Gray's writing.

Why is progress a pernicious myth? Why do beliefs that humanity can be improved end in farce or horror? Is atheism a hangover from Christian faith? John Gray, one of the most iconoclastic thinkers of our time, smashes through civilization's long cherished beliefs, overturning our view of the world and our place in it.
