Micro-Politics of Capital: Marx and the Prehistory of the Present Jason Read Paperback, September 2003 Product Details: ISBN: 079145844X Format: Paperback, 230pp Pub. Date: September 2003 Publisher: State University of New York Press Book Description Re-reads Marx in light of the contemporary critical interrogation of subjectivity. -- From the Back Cover What is the relation between the economy, or the mode of production, and culture, beliefs, and desires? How is it possible to think of these relations without reducing one to the other, or effacing one for the sake of the other? To answer these questions, The Micro-Politics of Capital re-reads Marx in light of the contemporary critical interrogations of subjectivity in the works of Althusser, Deleuze, Guattari, Foucault, and Negri. Jason Read suggests that what characterizes contemporary capitalism is the intimate intersection of the production of commodities with the production of desire, beliefs, and knowledge. -- About the Author Jason Read is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Southern Maine.
