'Stay, Illusion!': Re-reading HamletDownload audio (MP3)
In their re-reading of Shakespeare's "Hamlet," philosophy professor Simon Critchley and psychoanalyst Jamieson Webster examine the play alongside writers and philosophers such as Lacan, Freud and Melville. The result: "Stay, Illusion!" is a cultural and psychological analysis of the famous play, which reminds us why it has endured. They join us in the studio.
