What Is Democracy?
  • Year2018
  • Duration117 min

With democracy under threat globally, Astra Taylor's timely essay probes the meaning of the institution itself. Featuring a wide range of big thinkers from Cornel West to Silvia Federici, Taylor interweaves discussions about democracy's philosophical underpinnings with evidence of its all too flawed implementation, traveling from Athens, the birthplace of Plato's Republic, to Trump's unsettled America.
