Hubris: The Road to Donald Trump

With Seamus McKee


In today’s political climate we are faced with world leaders who are narcissists, depressives and alcoholics, affected by hubris and driven by religious beliefs, but none are more threatening to the current world order than Donald Trump, President of the United States of America.

In Lord David Owen’s new book, the former MP, Foreign Secretary, doctor and founding member of the SDP, offers us a new way of seeing Trump, placing him within a historical, political, philosophical and medical context. Examining the mental and physical conditions of past and present political leaders to show us that what went before paved the way to President Trump.

Join Lord Owen, in conversation with BBC’s Seamus McKee, as the two discuss Trump, hubris, health and narcissism.
