About the Event
We are endlessly fascinated by the French. We are fascinated by their way of life, their creativity, sophistication and self-assurance, and even their insistence that they are exceptional. But how did France become the country it is today, and what really sets it apart? In this luncheon program, journalist and historian Peter Watson presents The French Mind, a dazzling history of France that takes us from the seventeenth century to the present day through the nation’s most influential thinkers. This is a history of which documents the shaping of a nation whose global influence, in art, culture and politics, cannot be overstated.
PETER WATSON has been a Senior Editor on the Sunday Times of London, New York correspondent of The Times, and a columnist on the Observer. He has written for the New York Times, the Spectator, and the Miami Herald and presented several television programs. He has carried out three exposes in the art world, based on which seven people have been jailed in three countries.
