The Book Club: Lord of the Flies by William Golding with Lauren Chen
Play • 29 min
In a world without consequences, are humans naturally good or is there darkness within us all? Lauren Chen sits with Michael Knowles to discuss the classic novel Lord of the Flies about a group of British schoolboys who become stranded on a deserted island. Free to behave however they please, the boys reject societal norms and devolve into depravity. If the human impulse for power and groupthink overtake reason, is there any hope for Western civilization?
