Popular Philosophy
The moderator of the NY Times’ Stone column and the author of numerous books on everything from Greek tragedy to David Bowie, Simon Critchley PhD has been a strong voice in popular philosophy for more than a decade. Critchley brings together thirty‑five essays, originally published in the Times, on a wide range of topics, from the dimensions of Plato’s academy and the mysteries of Eleusis to Philip K. Dick, Mormonism, money and the joy and pain of Liverpool Football Club fans. In an engaging and jargon‑free style, Critchley writes with honesty about the state of the world as he offers philosophically informed and insightful considerations of happiness, violence and faith.
