about this item

Mark Kingwell is the rare philosopher who is as at home discussing Sex and the City as he is civility, who can find the Plato in pop culture, and sees in idleness a deeply revolutionary gesture. InDemocracy’s Gift, he brings his heady mixture of critical intelligence and infectious enthusiasm to bear on film, aesthetics, politics, and more, and confirms his place as one of our leading cultural theorists and philosophers.

After some years of graduate education in Britain and the United States, Mark Kingwellfound a form of idling for which he could get paid as a professor of philosophy at the University of Toronto.
