Enlightenment's Wake argues that all schools of contemporary political thought are variations on the Enlightenment Project and that this Enlightenment project has proved self-undermining, and is now exhausted. John Gray argues that both the desire of

'Gray is a clever and energetic political theorist in the analytical mode. He is also dauntingly well-read and up-to-date.' - Guardian
