Sartwell's blog, videos, and more

Long-time SUNY Press author Crispin Sartwell has set up his own YouTube channel called crispytheok. Crispin is a philosophy professor at Dickinson College, along with being a self-described amateur magician (check out his magic work in the videos), and professional anarchist.

Speaking of anarchy, Crispin's latest book with the Press, Against the State: An Introduction to Anarchist Political Theory, provides an incisive critique of liberal theories of the state. The working title was Philosophy Bomb!, so you know it's going to be interesting. Crispin expounds on the book's arguments in a series of YouTube videos as well.

For more from Crispin, check out his blog, Eye of the Storm, where he's busy "serving all your concrete slab and abudment needs" on a regular basis.
