Reblogged from Critical Theory:
Earlier this week The Guardian and Verso launched their “Radical Thinkers” video series, which aims to explain radical philosophy in short 3-4 minute videos. Since its inception earlier this week, a video has been released every day.
Today’s video tackles Simon Critchley’s “Infinitely Demanding“ and his thoughts on politics and anarchism.
Stella Sandford focuses on Willhelm Reich’s thoughts, especially on Marxism, psychoanalysis and patriarchy.
Esther Leslie discusses Marx Horkheimer’s “Critique of Instrumental Reason“ and the emergence of psuedo individuality.
Really interesting videos that provide some welcome critical engagement with philosophy (that is not Daniel Dennett) in a prominent British forum, albeit the left-leaning preserve of the self-identified middle classes that is the Grauniad (of which, of course, I am a reader ;-).
