On #NovaraFM, James Butler is joined by Will Davies to discuss his new book ‘Nervous States: How Feeling Took Over the World’. From Hobbes’ state founded on fear to the return of the irrational to public life, the discussion charts the return of feeling, Facebook’s dream of telepathy, and the powerful role of nostalgia in politics.
