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.

Guests:

Dr. Simon Critchley, Hans Jonas Professor of Philosophy at The New School, and co-author of "Stay, Illusion! The Hamlet Doctrine"

Dr. Jamieson Webster, psychoanalyst in private practice in New York; professor at Eugene Lang College; and co-author of "Stay, Illusion! The Hamlet Doctrine"
