MindMaps

Sunday 14 October 2007 21:30-22:15 (Radio 3)

A series examining the ferment of ideas generated in a single city.

Duration:

45 minutes

Playlist:

3/3. Chicago: Factory of the Future

In series about how different cities have shaped our world, Felipe Fernández-Armesto probes the relationship between leading economists and political thinkers at the University of Chicago in the 1950s, including Milton Friedman and Leo Strauss, and the city itself.

George Steiner and Richard Sennett recall the Chicago of the time, and we learn how the celebration of individualism by some Chicago intellectuals contrasts starkly with other aspects of life in the Windy City.
