Have you become a Pandemic Podcat? If podcasts are your lifeline to the world, you’ll love the Onassis Foundation’s Quarantine Tapes where learned international guests discuss how they’re experiencing the global pandemic. This episode: Simon Critchley on "Looking at the Contemporary World Through the Lens of Punk, Greek Tragedy, and Humour At a Distance."
“(It is) only in relation to the certainty of your own death that you can actually be free,” suggests Critchley, noted philosopher and professor at the New School for Social Research in New York. The recording explores ways in which the Covid-19 virus may be rewiring our very being and the need to better understand our anxiety. Digest it as part of the Onassis Foundation’s brilliant We Stay Close, Not Closed virtual culture platform.
