Simon Critchley: Fireflies

Is anger the first political emotion? In Infinitely Demanding (2007) the philosopher Simon Critchley identifies a massive political disappointment at the heart of liberal democracy and argues for an ethics of commitment that can inform a radical politics. In this talk Critchley discusses the infinite demands of art and his growing interests in collaborative practices in relation to art and politics.


Simon Critchley is chair of the Department of Philosophy at the New School for Social Research. His recent books include The Book of Dead Philosophers (2009) and On Heidegger’s Being and Time (2008).
