By Franco "Bifo" Berardi

A complete philosophy of latest existence and politics, by means of one of many sharpest critics of the present

We dwell in an age of impotence. caught among worldwide struggle and international finance, among id and capital, we appear to be incapable of manufacturing the novel switch that's so desperately wanted. Is there nonetheless how to disentangle ourselves from an international order that shapes our politics in addition to our imagination?

In his such a lot systematic booklet so far, well known Italian theorist Franco Berardi tackles this question via a superior but visionary research of the 3 basic thoughts of chance, efficiency, and tool. Characterizing threat because the content material, efficiency because the strength, and gear because the shape, Berardi means that the line to emancipation unravels from the attention that the sector of the potential is barely constrained, and never created, by way of the ability constructions that enforce it. different futures and different worlds are continuously already inscribed in the current, regardless of power’s try out at conserving them invisible. Overcoming any temptation of giving in to melancholy or nostalgia, Berardi proposes the suggestion of Futurability to be able to remind us that even in the darkness of our present problem lies dormant the horizon of possibility.
