Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"An entertaining set of conversations with a bright star ofphilosophy."
Boyd Tonkin, The Independent

"The pages are stuffed with reminiscence and intriguing passingideas as well as more arguments (of greater or lesser plausability)than most books twice the length. The intellectual register soarsand plunges in a pleasing rhythm."
StevenPoole, The Guardian

"Apart from his charming autobiography, Critchley is remarkablyadept at clearly explaining quite difficult ideas."
Nina Power, Philosophers' Magazine

"Carl Cederstrom's book of interviews with Simon Critchley,reminded me that I was not the only tinnitus-blighted Scouser to befighting the good fight for 'Continental' philosophy!"
MarkThwaite, Ready Steady Book

"An indispensable resource to anyone interested in Critchley'swriting."
A Piece ofMonologue 

"After reading this book, I was, I must admit, sorely tempted toanswer Camus's famous question in the affirmative."
David Shields, author of Reality Hunger
