About Babette Babich

Babette Babich writes on the political divisions of contemporary philosophy resulting in an "impoverishment of philosophy," to cite the title of a recent interview. Her newest book is on music and technology in our society and foregrounds Leonard Cohen, k.d lang, but also Theodor Adorno on the way to a discussion of Nietzsche and Beethoven. She also writes on classical themes, notably life-size ancient Greek bronzes and art, and recently contributed to a museum catalog on the sculpture of Jeff Koons. And, oh yes, she is also fond, as most philosophers have been fond, of cats.
