Join Simon Critchley and Tom McCarthy for a lunchtime talk around the issues raised by Critchley's new book The Faith of the Faithless. Topics will include the relation between politics, religion and violence, and the possibility of a supreme fiction in relation to art, literature and philosophy.

Critchley and McCarthy have collaborated closely for the past 10 years in connection with their semi-fictitious organization, the International Necronautical Society (INS), and have written together on Joyce, Shakespeare and inauthenticity. A volume of their INS texts has just appeared in German with Diaphanes and is forthcoming in English from Sternberg Press.
