A new political ethics that confronts the injustices of liberal democracy.
From the Publisher:

The clearest, boldest and most systematic statement of Simon Critchley'sinfluential views on philosophy, ethics, and politics, Infinitely Demanding identifiesa massive political disappointment at the heart of liberal democracy. Arguing that what is called for is an ethics of commitment that caninform a radical politics, Critchley considers the possibility of political subjectivityand action after Marx and Marxism, taking in the work of Kant, Levinas, Badiou and Lacan. Infinitely Demanding culminates in an argument for anarchism as an ethical practice and a remotivating means of political organization.
