I wasn't familiar with Wilson before, but I trusted BetterListen and I gave him a try. The lecture is highly provocative and interesting so I learnt to appreciate Wilson.
Colin Wilson was an enormously prolific and entertaining writer, but also ver thoughtful and provocative. There are actually not many recordings of him, as far as I know (different times) so these are essential for any Wilson-lovers. He is a man of his time, with some of the prejudices of earlier days, but overall a tremendous treat.
