Clare Carlisle is Reader in Philosophy and Theology at King’s College London. She is a regular contributor to the Times Literary Supplement and has written dozens of articles on philosophy for The Guardian. Her book, On Habit, was named an Outstanding Academic Title of 2014 by Choice, and she has recently edited George Eliot’s translation of Spinoza’s Ethics.

Stephen Grosz is a practicing psychoanalyst. Born in Indiana, educated at the University of California, Berkeley, and at Oxford University, he lives in London. In his book, The Examined Life, he distills 50,000 hours of clinical work into a series of jargon-free stories. An international bestseller, translated into over thirty languages, adapted for radio and stage, The Examined Life was a New York Times Book of the Year.
