Harry Redner: An Introduction to three new works

by David Roberts

At the time of his sudden, unexpected death in September 2021, Harry Redner had just completed three book length manuscripts. The three books were conceived as a trilogy but one in which each part could be read independently on its own terms. Together they constitute a last comprehensive reflection on the themes that had constantly preoccupied him, which takes the form of a stock taking at the end of European civilization (see Redner, Beyond Civilization, 2013).
