✏Speeding Up Fast Capitalism Book Summary : In his 1989 book, Fast Capitalism, Ben Agger presented a framework for understanding late-20th century social problems. Speeding Up Fast Capitalism, a sequel to his earlier book, assesses social changes since the end of the 1980s brought about by information technologies like the Internet, which have quickened the pace of everyday life. In Speeding Up Fast Capitalism, Agger assesses the impact of the Internet on consciousness, communication, culture and community, and evaluates the prospects of democratic social change. Where the earlier book was largely theoretical, Speeding Up applies critical theory to specific topics such as Internet culture, work, families, childhood, schooling, food, the body and fitness. Although indebted to Fast Capitalism, the sequel appeals to an audience wider than theorists, including empirical sociologists, social scientists and scholars in cultural disciplines.

📒Alienation ✍ Rahel Jaeggi

✏Book Title : Alienation

✏ISBN : 9780231151986
✏Available Language : English, Spanish, And French

✏Alienation Book Summary : The Hegelian-Marxist idea of alienation fell out of favor during the post-metaphysical rejection of humanism and essentialist views of human nature. In this book Jaeggi draws on phenomenological analyses grounded in modern conceptions of agency, along with recent work in the analytical tradition, to reconceive of alienation as the absence of a meaningful relationship to oneself and others, which manifests itself in feelings of helplessness and the despondent acceptance of ossified social roles and expectations. A revived approach to alienation helps critical social theory engage with phenomena, such as meaninglessness, isolation, and indifference, which have broad implications for issues of justice. By severing alienationÕs link to a problematic conception of human essence while retaining its social-philosophical content, Jaeggi provides resources for a renewed critique of social pathologies, a much-neglected concern in contemporary liberal political philosophy. Her work revisits the arguments of Rousseau, Hegel, Kierkegaard, and Heidegger, placing them in dialogue with Thomas Nagel, Bernard Williams, and Charles Taylor.

✏Historical Development Of Capitalism In The United States And Its Affects On The American Family From Colonial Times To 1920 Book Summary : This book takes a giant step out of conventional thinking, and proceeds to establish the inseparable connection that exists between the American Family and capitalism. Too often, answers to the critical questions of American family decay are sought separately from the interdependent history it shares with the economic system in which it takes place. By choosing to end our search for cause within the effect of American family decay, and by using this new freedom of inquiry, we can return to a time in our history when the American family was free of the great troubles it is undergoing today. By doing so, it is possible to discover at what point the fabric of the American family began to unravel. Once we see when the problem began and what caused it, this makes it possible to take individual and collective action to change and reproduce the American family anew, exclusive of violence and war.

✏Book Title : Psychosocial Consequences of Natural and Alienated Labor

✏Available Language : English, Spanish, And French

✏Psychosocial Consequences of Natural and Alienated Labor Book Summary : The Psychosocial Consequences of Natural and Alienated Labor offers a new perspective on how the capitalist labor process shapes the character of its participants. Schwalbe argues that with appropriate social-psychological elaboration, Marx’s original analysis of alienated labor can provide a powerful theoretical framework for understanding the psychological consequences of working for capitalism. What is needed, Schwalbe contends, is a social psychology compatible with Marx’s naturalist view of human nature and which specifies more precisely the processes whereby alienated labor produces particular psychological outcomes. This social psychology is found in the work of G. H. Mead. Drawing principally on Mead’s philosophy of the act and theory of aesthetic experience, Schwalbe forges a natural labor perspective that is then used to guide an empirical study of work experiences and their consequences among employees in five capitalist firms. This study shows how capitalist production limits opportunities for problem solving, role taking, means-ends comprehension, and self-objectification in work, and how the lack of these experiences affects intellectual and moral development. Schwalbe also discusses the directions implied by the natural labor perspective for pursuing a transformation of capitalist society.
