Reviews

"A provocative and engrossing invitation to think about the human condition and what philosophy can and can't do to illuminate it."
--The Financial Times

"Rigorous, profound and frequently hilarious. . . . Critchley is an engaging, deadpan guide to the metaphysical necropolis. . . . At a time when much popular philosophy is either frivolous, dull or complacent, his is a bracingly serious and properly comic presence."
--The Daily Telegraph (UK)
