Professor Quassim Cassam’s ongoing research into philosophical subjects which connect to urgent global issues continues with a new volume on extremism published by Routledge in September 2021.

How does extremism differ from fanaticism and fundamentalism?  How does one become an extremist? How should the notions of radicalization, counter-radicalization and deradicalization be understood?
