New Culture Forum – So What You’re Saying Is: Masculinity In Crisis? What Does It Mean To Be A Man & How Can Men Live More Meaningful Lives? – James Innes-Smith


Premiered Nov 13, 2020

This was very interesting and is very relevant

Masculinity has reached a moment of crisis. From the erosion of unifying institutions such as marriage to a rise in male suicide rates, these are particularly turbulent times to be a man. Increasing numbers of men are finding themselves anchorless, uprooted from the conventions and certainties of their forefathers.

Today masculinity itself has come under attack, relentlessly maligned in the media. Now, more than ever, the long and perilous journey from infant to old age is fraught with strange complexities, moral dichotomies and maddening contradictions.

So, what does it mean to be a man in the twenty-first century? How can today’s men lead a more fulfilling existence?

Joining Peter Whittle on this week’s “So What You’re Saying is…” to discuss these subjects is James Innes-Smith, author of the new book “The Seven Ages of Man: How To Live A Meaningful Life”. (…)

James Innes-Smith is a British author and journalist. He has written for a number of publications including the Daily Telegraph, Spectator, The Times, Evening Standard, Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday, Standpoint and The Oldie.
