Critchley’s Infinitely Demanding

Been reading Simon Critchley’s book… “Infinitely Demanding. Ethics of Commitment, Politics of Resistance“…

I have to admit to being largely lost by the extraordinary range of philosophical thinking that he refers to in the first half…

However, the second half is much more engaging (to me at any rate) and is – I think – a must read for anyone serious about the rationale behind any kind of political activism or identity politics – particularly in how that might be done after a postmodern fracturing of taken for granted political units.

I’ll post a synthesis here when I get time…
