Simon Critchley is Hans Jonas Professor at the New School for Social Research, and also teaches at Tilburg University and the European Graduate School.

His many books include Ethics-Politics-Subjectivity, The Book of Dead Philosophers, and The Faith of the Faithless. Writer Federico Campagna presents the argument for anarchism as an ethical practice developed in Simon Critchley's passionate and witty Infinitely Demanding.
