John Gray is Professor of European Thought at the London School. of Economics He is the author of over a dozen books including. False Dawn Granta Books which has been translated into fourteen. This is a very important book and I believe a great one which will in. the future if we have one be read by wiser generations than ours. Pithy epigrammatic and distilled it is the work of a mind of immense. learning and curiosity The book s overwhelming virtue and it is one. that should silence all dissent is that it counsels only humility It sub. verts all contemporary vanities and in advocating contemplation. rather than action it asks only that we seek to fmd peace with ourselves. and the world Read properly this book will bring you peace I can. think of no higher recommendation Bryan Appleyard literary Review. Nothing will get you thinking as much as this brilliant book opens. new vistas of understanding and to call the conclusions sobering. would be an understatement George Walden Sundqy Telegraph. An absorbing book full of challenging ideas you want to argue. with worrying but strangely not depressing Joan Bakewell New. Extraordinary Gray is undeniably a force to be reckoned with He. is the most lucid and compelling writer about political theory since. Isaiah Berlin Johann Hari Independent, A clear eyed assessment of human nature and our almost unlimited. gift for self delusion A deeply provocative and unsettling book J G. Harsh and self lacerating an excoriating attack on humanist pro. gressivism and all its derivatives David Marquand New Statesman. A remarkable new work of philosophy Straw Dogs is that rarest of. things a contemporary work of philosophy devoid of jargon wholly. accessible and profoundly relevant to the rapidly evolving world we. live in Straw Dogs is a simple tool wielded effectively to devastating. effect after reading it you ll fmd that everything remains exactly the. same but appears very different And that is disturbing Will Self. Independent, George Orwell s Animal Farm woke us from a deep sleep filled with. dreams of enlightened humanism John Gray s Straw Dogs forces us to. face the mirror and see ourselves as we are James Lovelock. At once daunting and enthralling Gray s remarkable new book shows. us what it would be like to live without the distraction of consolations. Adam Phillips, Tough minded and entertaining this is popular philosophy at its best. The more you disagree with john Gray s main line of argument the. more you will gain from him Splendid Don Cupitt, Gray renders philosophy accessible to the layman For those who. like their philosophy fast and furious Straw Dogs is recommended as a. hectoring attack on man centred thinking Ian Thomson Independent. Gray has written a book of gloriously exhilarating pessimism A mag. nificent book Not everyone will agree with Gray but everyone should. be provoked by this book into fresh and painful thought There can be. no higher praise Richard Holloway Scotsman, He writes as he talks with the exhilarating high risk urgency of a cav.
alry charge Straw Dogs mingles brilliance perversity and throbbing. pain Times Literary Supplement, A disturbing and thought provoking book Are we really that dif. ferent from animals Are we really superior Gray s book makes a. convincing argument for the opposite view Sunday Tribune Dublin. The book is challenging and well written Gray expresses his views. clearly convincingly and with authority Straw Dogs contains so many. arresting points and thought provoking ideas that it s hard to imagine. any reader not being moved Focus, STRAW DOGS, Thoughts on Humans. and Other Animals, Granta Books, Granta Publications 2 3 Hanover Yard Noel Road London N I 8BE.

FURTHER READING 201, Heaven and earth are ruthless and treat the myriad. creatures as straw dogs, ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS, In this book I have tried to present a view of things in which. humans are not central My thoughts are presented in frag. ments but they are not unsystematic I hope they can be. read one after the other or dipped into at will I have made. rather extensive use of quotations not I believe in order to. lend authority to an unfamiliar way of thinking but simply to. illustrate what it might mean The notes at the back of the. book have the same aim, Several people have given me stimulus advice and. encouragement Exchanges with James Lovelock helped. clarify my thinking on the Gaia hypothesis Reading and. talking withJ G Ballard sharpened my view of the present. and the near future Adam Phillips s comments and sugges. tions on a draft version have shaped the book in a number. of ways Simon May gave me detailed comments on the. philosophical portions and Vincent Deary gave me com. ments on the sections of the book dealing with, consciousness At Granta Neil Belton gave me unfailing. encouragement and advice and Sara Holloway gave me. invaluable comments and suggestions all the way through. the book s gestation and production I owe debts to all of. these people but I have not always followed any advice they. STRAW DOGS, may have given Responsibility for the thoughts expressed.
here remains mine, The book is dedicated to Mieko without whom it would. not have been written, FOREWORD TO THE, PAPERBACK EDITION. S traw Dogs is an attack on the unthinking beliefs of thinking. people Today liberal humanism has the pervasive power that. was once possessed by revealed religion Humanists like to. think they have a rational view of the world but their core. belief in progress is a superstition further from the truth. about the human animal than any of the world s religions. Outside of science progress is simply a myth In some. readers of S traw Dogs this observation seems to have pro. duced a moral panic Surely they ask no one can question. the central article of faith of liberal societies Without it will. we not despair Like trembling Victorians terrified of losing. their faith these humanists cling to the moth eaten brocade. of progressive hope Today religious believers are more free. thinking Driven to the margins of a culture in which science. claims authority over all of human knowledge they have had. to cultivate a capacity for doubt In contrast secular believ. ers held fast by the conventional wisdom of the time are. in the grip of unexamined dogmas, T he prevailing secular worldview is a pastiche of current. scientific orthodoxy and pious hopes Darwin has shown that. we are animals but as humanists never tire of preaching. how we live is up to us Unlike any other animal we are.
