Professor Simon Critchley
Professor Simon Critchley of the New School is one of the premier philosophers on the public stage today. Moderator of the New York Times Philsophy Blog, The Stone, Critchley's work cuts across poetry, theatre, rock music, sport, psychoanalysis, phenomenology and politics to engage the most pressing questions of human existence: the meaning of life and death, the nature of wisdom, political life, play, art and humor. His philosophy is relevant not only to the academy but to everyone seeking to live meaningfully in a complicated and difficult world.
The Simon Silverman Phenomenology Center is delighted to welcome Professor Critchley to Duquesne University for a two-day seminar and a public lecture on his past and current work.
