Conversation Series

The philosophical conversation series On Truth (And Lies) continues to challenge our perceptions of truth as it explores the question of “what is truth” in various domains, including science, literature, visual arts, history, religion, morality, politics, and journalism.

Simon Critchley is the Hans Jonas Professor of Philosophy at the New School for Social Research. In addition to being the moderator of this conversation series, Critchley is the moderator of the New York Times philosophy column, “The Stone.” He is the author of more than a dozen books. Two books of interviews with Critchley have recently been published: How to Stop Living and Start Worrying (Polity, 2010) and Impossible Objects (Polity, 2011). The Faith of the Faithless, a major new work on the relationship between politics, religion and violence was published by Verso in February 2012. A new book on Shakespeare's Hamlet will be published by Pantheon Books this summer.
