Weikart on C-SPAN: Jefferson, Russell, Hitler, Pianka, and More

David Klinghoffer


Our Discovery Institute colleague Richard Weikart was on C-SPAN2 recently to talk about two of his books, The Death of Humanity and Hitler’s Religion. You can see that now here.

The conversation with interviewer Peter Slen is under 14 minutes but remarkably rich, not only covering two books but centuries of European and American history, discussing the Enlightenment, Thomas Jefferson, Bertrand Russell, Adolf Hitler, Eric Pianka, and more. Kudos to Mr. Slen who is utterly unreadable as to his own attitudes on any of this. That is a fine quality in an interviewer.
