Summary
Explores how the concept of "the end of the world" has developed over the ages and how it continues to occupy our thoughts. The ideas of four commentators are explored:- cultural philosopher, George Steiner ; psychoanalyst, Robert Lifton ; art historian, Donald Kuspit and film writer and historian, Vivian Sobchack. Provides examples from sci-fi movies of the fifties, 15th and 16th century paintings of Bosch and Bruegel and Hiroshima after the bomb. It shows that there is the possibility now to bring about an end of the world by our own technology, our own hands
