    Paperback Description:

    Join us in a conversations with Cornel West, at Harvard Bookstore on March 8, 2021

    These interviews deftly highlight…the life and thought of Cornel West. Teodros Kiros, one of our leading living philosophers, novelists, television personalities, and commentators on modern African life, brilliantly weaves together a series of dialogues that novices and experts of West’s work alike will find invaluable. The questioning of Kiros and responses of West encourage us to meditate on the meaning of A Love Supreme from the heart, which the Ethiopian thinker Zara Yacob maintained is the site of reason. —Neil Roberts, Professor of Political Science, Williams College

    Cornel West defines himself as “a bluesman in the life of the mind, and a jazzman in the world of ideas.” Conversations with Cornel West demonstrates the truth of that self-description as he engages in Socratic dialogue with Teodros Kiros, a scholar who not only understands the importance of rigor, but who possesses a fund of knowledge that is broad in scope and analytic in precision. There is no one-upmanship in this shared critical space. —George Yancy, PhD, Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor of Philosophy at Emory University,
