About the Author

Bruce G Charlton is Visiting Professor of Theoretical Medicine at the University of Buckingham and Reader in Evolutionary Psychiatry at Newcastle University.

Reviews

Employing an aphoristic, almost Nietzschean, style of prose, Charlton issues a jeremiad against "political correctness," which he identifies as a product of the left (whether socialists, communists, liberals, etc.) but as also currently infecting the center and the right, perpetuated by the mass media and an intellectual elite and representing a "triumph of the left" that threatens to unravel modernity itself. It's unfortunately not entirely clear just exactly what he means by "political correctness." It is, at various times: a form of nihilism, a defense of pure pleasure-seeking, an irrational denial of reality (for example, of the assumed fact that the military is for men and care of young children is for women), or an attempt to privilege some groups over other groups, to cite a few examples.
