On today's show, I talk to philosopher Simon Critchley. Raised
north of London, Simon grew up in a working class atmosphere.
He never thought he'd attend university, but then a chance accident
sent him off on an academic path. In 1988, Simon received his PhD
from the University of Essex, and since then, he's written 14
books, many of them friendly to a wider audience. This includes his
most recent book Bowie, a
philosophical look at the songs of David Bowie mixed with Simon's
own recollections of how important Bowie was to him in his youth.
Currently, Simon is the Hans Jonas Professor of
Philosophy at the New School in New York City.
