Virtual Event Virtual Event

Philosopher Simon Critchley speaks about the most fundamental questions in philosophy, their relevance in the contemporary age, and how we might try to answer them.

The New York Times’s philosophy series, the Stone, provides a platform for voices in different fields to speak on timeless philosophical questions. From democracy and ethics to human nature and the meaning of life, Times editors invite authors, artists, politicians, and more to contribute perspectives informed by their crafts. In Question Everything, editors Simon Critchley and Peter Catapano compile essays published in the Stone which, rather than providing definitive answers, call to attention the value of questioning itself. Presenting a diverse array of stances and demanding self-reflection, the work is a celebration of critical thought. Critchley will speak on the project of the Stone, the many directions of contemporary philosophy, and the art and importance of questioning in the current day.

About the speaker:

Simon Critchley is the Hans Jonas Professor of Philosophy at the New School for Social Research. He is the author of more than thirty works of philosophy in diverse topics such as humor, democracy, suicide, and David Bowie. Critchley is moderator of the Stone.
