Håb – et forsvar for fremtiden

Hope: In Defense of The Future – Non-fiction. People’s Press 2018.

An exhaustingly researched argument, a personal essay about why it is that we – in our culture especially – keep thinking we live in the end times. And a defense of hope as the pragmatic and responsible choice. “Leth’s urge and ability to convey as well as his admirably wide employment of everything from religious history to archeology and statistics are as always exemplary.” – Information. “With this book Kristian Leth helps us straighten our back, lift our eyes, lighten our minds and dare to hope.” Bjarke Ingels. Translated to German and French

  1. Før og efter videnskab:
    Tænker at du vil finde min bog “Den mystiske oplevelse” interessant. Den udkommer 26/5 2016 på Skriveforlaget. Den bog fremlægger bl.a. en model for et samlet, integreret syn på “fysik” og “metafysik”. Et nyt perspektiv, frigjort fra de traditionelle, fastlåste positioner. som jeg tidligt kom til at anse for uvirkelige.
    Mange hilsener
