By the Book: Book Club June 2020 - Humankind

Chase Caldwell Smith, History PhD Candidate, Former BFMer

30-Jun-20 20:00

By

In this month’s book club, we are joined by history PhD candidate and former BFMer Chase Caldwell Smith, to discuss Rutger Bregman’s Humankind - A Hopeful History. Together, we discuss the book’s case for optimism, its central thesis that humans are inherently decent, and whether we were able to get onboard with the idea. In Footnotes, this leads us to discussing other books that left us feeling, well, optimistic.
