In more than pages which capiatlismo devours like a great novel, the book furnishes new weapons for the renewal of the Left. In this major work, the sociologists Eve Chiapello and Boltansmi Boltanski go to the heart of the changes on contemporary business culture. Via an unprecedented analysis epiritu management texts that have formed the thinking of employers in their reorganization of business, the authors trace the contours of a new spirit of capitalism.

They argue that from the middle of the s onwards, capitalism abandoned the hierarchical Fordist work structure caoitalismo developed a new network-based form of organization that was founded on employee initiative and autonomy in the workplace – a ‘freedom’ that came at the cost of material and psychological security.

The authors ddel this new spirit with the children of the libertarian and romantic currents of the late s as epitomized by dressed-down, cool capitalists such as Bill Gates and ‘Ben and Neuvo arguing that they practice a more successful and subtle for of exploitation.

In a work that is already a classic in Europe, Boltanski and Chiapello show how the new spirit triumphed thanks to a remarkable recuperation of the Left’s critique of the alienation of everyday life – a recuperation that simultaneously undermined the power of its social critique.

Detalles del producto Tapa dura: Verso Books 16 de enero de Idioma: An important and enormously well-researched work of sociology which enquires into the normative and managerial transformations within capitalism, tracing developments and alterations emerging from the collapse of Taylorism and tracing a compelling narrative of managerial transformation from the post period to the s.



Through discursive and empirical analyses, the authors show that capitalism has proven remarkably adroit in its capacity to respond to, and adapt itself in the face of its ideological criticisms. A seminal resource for anyone interested in the neo-liberal hegemonic present.

One does not necessarily have to be a militant to be a Marxist today. In fact, these terms can, in some cases, be mutually exclusive. The political currency of this, as much as we would like to protest to the contrary, is scant indeed. In this regard, it is a veritable gift to activists of all stripes, from no-border networks to immigrant labor activists.

The prose is rather clinical and anodyne, averting the ludic feints of post-structuralist theory, but it is eminently readable. The book sets out to achieve three things: This history is not one of goltanski development, but rupture and discontinuity.


In their estimation, May marks the closure of an era, revealing as it does the decrepitude of a doddering market model. Slavoj Zizek exhorts us to remember that May was not merely the dream of a few bored petit-bourgeois students, an epiphenomenon of the hippie Sixties, but a truly transversal event where students and intellectuals deserted their university posts to occupy the factories.

By standing alongside the proletariat in a united refusal, the students incarnated an implacable demand that capitalism was no longer equipped to handle. Capitalism, in itself, is an impersonal, inhuman process with no regard for its effective agents- it desires nothing other than its own valorization and proliferation.

The Gramscian question retains all of its force today- how is hegemony constructed? Clearly, capitalism requires, as its social precondition, a justificatory base, a morality capitaljsmo is grafted upon it as a foundational supplement.

To their bolltanski, Boltanski and Chiapello hold fast to an unfashionable position, retaining as they do the importance of human agency. Ideology is not some sort of mandate legislated from above, it must be actively endorsed by its addressees. When capitalism speaks about security, liberty and self-expression, it must deliver on these claims, or risk the revocation of this endorsement.


When endorsement is withdrawn and capitalism is called to account for its betrayals, it is in crisis. Globalization is profoundly ontogenetic in the Foucauldian sense- it has generated a new regime of cosmopolitan mandarins, a new breed of elites.

The worker today is required to acquire a variety of skills that were irrelevant in prior epochs- he is enjoined to transform himself on a perpetual basis through learning, training programs, etcetera. The merits of this book are many, and I have merely attempted to give a brief sketch of its central tropes.

Most importantly, it should serve as a revelatory wake-up call to narcoleptics ensconced in their post-structuralist slumber, drunk on romantic capitalism. Essentially, The New Spirit of Capitalism is the history of a perilous dialectic, the dangerous Boltabski dance of critique and capitalism.

Capitalism has, more often than not, exhibited a near-limitless capacity to absorb and mobilize even the most devastating critiques, integrating them into its chain of command. This, as we know, has led to the Bataillean jaundice of Capitalksmo, the mawkish self-flagellation of Vattimo and the hysterical outbursts of Virilio.

Perhaps the first task of today’s Left is, as Badiou has said, to free ourselves from any historicist eschatology messianic hopes have been betrayed! History is a sham! This book should be prefaced with a Dantean injunction: Gana dinero con nosotros. Todos los derechos reservados.
