In conversation with Giles Fraser

After religious and political disappointment comes philosophy. Simon Critchley, Hans Jonas Professor of Philosophy at the New School in New York and Chief Philosopher of the INS, will be at the shop to discuss the arguments of his new book The Faith of the Faithless: Experiments in Political Theology, and to share with us his thoughts on violence, non-violence and Slavoj Žižek, the latest stage in the ongoing debate between the two which began in the pages of the LRB.

Critchley will be in conversation with Dr Giles Fraser, the former canon chancellor of St Paul's Cathedral who resigned in October 2011 in protest at plans to forcibly remove Occupy protesters from its steps.
