26 Sep , 2020  

Climate change is a weapon of primitive accumulation

Der funktionelle Psychopath – Wahn von der Stange

Die seit dem Jahre 1980 im Zuge der neoliberalen Transformationen stattfindenden Umstrukturierungen waren es auch, die das finanzialisierte Risikosubjekt in die Individuen introjizierten, womit der autoritäre Charakter und der narzisstische Typus schleichend, aber doch in einer kurzen historischen Zeitspanne abgelöst wurden, wobei ...

Stiegler and Lacan — No Relation?

22 Sep , 2020  

I won’t bring up Lacan on Monday. But the non-encounter between Stiegler and Lacan recently struck me as important and I wanted to try to unravel the mystery…

Man verpaßt so die Geschichte und ihre Wendepunkte, denn die Geschichte ist selbstverständlich voller Verschwörungen, vollzieht sich nicht von selbst. Und man verabschiedet sich von jedem Gedanken, sich vielleicht selbst gegen diese ...

Financialization:Market Discipline or Capital Discipline?

19 Sep , 2020
