The Last Night: anti-work, atheism, adventure

Federico Campagna will discuss the rise to power of the new Work religion, and will present the case for ‘radical atheism’.


The Last Night: anti-work, atheism, adventure
Our secular society seems to have finally found its new God: Work. As technological progress makes human labour superfluous, and over-production destroys both the economy and the planet, Work remains stronger than ever as a mantra of universal submission. Federico Campagna will discuss the rise to power of the new Work religion, and will present the case for ‘radical atheism’. Drawing from a vast array of sources, spanning from the Hellenistic ultra-hedonist Cyrainc philosophers to the Jesuit author Baltasar Gracian to the anarchist philosopher Max Stirner, this lecture will explore ethical alternatives to the contemporary cult of voluntary servitude.

Federico Campagna is a writer based in London. His main fields of research are ethics and anarchism. His latest book is 'The Last Night: anti-work, atheism, adventure' (Zero Books, 2013).

Tea & Coffee will be available.
