This work talks about a new political ethics that confronts and faces down the injustices of the present. Infinitely Demanding is the clearest, boldest and most systematic statement of Simon Critchley's influential views on philosophy, ethics and politics. Part diagsis of the times, part theoretical analysis of the impasses and possibilities of ethics and politics, part manifesto, Infinitely Demanding identifies a massive political disappointment at the heart of liberal democracy and argues that what is called for is an ethics of commitment that can inform a radical politics. Exploring the problem of ethics in Kant, Levinas, Badiou and Lacan that leads to a conception of subjectivity based on the infinite responsibility of an ethical demand, Critchley considers the possibility of political subjectivity and action after Marx and Marxism. Infinitely Demanding culminates in an argument for anarchism as an ethical practice and a re-motivating means of political organization.
Simon Critchley is Professor of Philosophy at the New School for Social Research at the University of Essex, Colchester, UK. He is the author of many books, including Ethics-Politics-Subjectivity from Verso (1999), and, most recently, Things Merely Are (2005).
