With Tom McCarthy

What is the truth? Simon Critchley, one of today's leading contemporary philosophers and moderator of the popular New York Times philosophy series "The Stone," presents On Truth (and Lies), a new conversation series that encourages audiences to abandon their convictions at the door and explore the ambiguity of reality.

Is literature a true representation of our commonly shared world? The celebrated author of Remainder, Men in Space, and C (shortlisted for the 2010 Man Booker Prize), Tom McCarthy joins Critchley to discuss truth and lies in literature, from the canonical works of Cervantes and Joyce to contemporary writings.
