Infinitely Demanding: Ethics of Commitment, Politics of Resistance

by: Simon Critchley

Publisher: Random House Books (2007)


Staff Pick by comrade: Lisa

The bulk of this book contains a very thorough model of ethics and ethical subjectivity brought about by the combination of a very diverse set of philosophical and psychoanalytic theories. The author then, rather hastily, tries to tie this model to his own sort of post-Marxist, pro-anarchism views of political action. He doesn't quite succeed at pulling the two together, but it's a worthwhile read anyhow.
