Simon Critchley, author of The Book of Dead Philosophers, will recount anecdotes of philosophers’ deaths since antiquity that range from noble to ridiculous. Through the lens of their last moments, Critchley will reflect on the relationship between a philosopher’s work and his death. In the process, he will question the adage “to philosophize is to die well” and meditate on the role of philosophy in living a good life in a society like ours that spends so much time and space denying the reality of death.
