Tonight I will be speaking at the "Philosophical Theatre" at the National Theatre in Zagreb, opening the new season.

The "Philosophical Theatre" seems a sort of antifascist platform that has become prestigious in the struggling cultural and intellectual life of Croatia, the nearly world champion. Previous performers (if that is the right word) have included Thomas Piketty, Vanessa Redgrave, Slavoj Zizek, Herta Müller.

"On Eukodal Wagner sounds even more pompous."
