My favorite book at the moment - not a fan of our world
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 20 years ago
As far as books on the state we're in go, this one is a cracker. Not the easiest to read, or most gripping - but Jean knows what he thinks and he has thought a great deal. Plenty of metaphors for reading the world and copious references. It would be twee of me to say that I agreed with everything he said, but I would say that he certainly has some excellent reflections and observations on how the world is shaping us, shaping it. From the compression of time to the extent of globalisation and the hegemonic forces of modern capitalism. Not truly a layman's book, nor is it purely for the academic in the field. This book is for those who are concerned about where we are, where we have been, and, you've guessed it, where we are going. A great and masterful synopsis of modern life, with a little self importance but perhaps a little more justification for it. I like what is written there.
