“Too much Zeit, not enough Geist”

Says Richard Sennett about neoconservatism/liberal capitalism as the spirit of our age, in this excellent edition of “Thinking Allowed” on Radio4. Anthony O’Hear, and Marina Warner also debate the big idea of “The big idea”. “Mythographer” Warner also touches on what the internet has done for the spread of ideas and its effect on the zeitgeist. I’ve never read any of her books, but they sound my cup of tea. Any views?
