Korte beschrijving: Where does our fascination with the Apocalypse come from? Is time cyclical or linear? Can society survive without ideology? Can children be philosophers? Four great witnesses of our closing century examine our preoccupations at the end of this millennium, cast back to the fears and hopes of previous generations and examine the challenges to come. Mixing the humorous with the profound, they tackle a vast range of fundamental questions which have long taxed the minds not only of our greatest thinkers, but most of the rest of us too.
