The first volume of a collection of papers on cognitive capitalism in relation with the conditions of mind and brain in the Information Age.
The Psychopathologies of Cognitive Capitalism: Part One collects the papers that were presented during the first part of the conference in Los Angeles in November 2012. This volume is the first of a series of books that attempts to broaden the definition of cognitive capitalism in terms of the scope of its material relations especially as it relates to the conditions of mind and brain in our new world of advanced telecommunication, data mining and social relations. It is our hope to first improve awareness of its most repressive characteristics and secondly to produce an arsenal of discursive practices with which to combat it.
Published following the conference “The Psychopathologies of Cognitive Capitalism: Part Two” at ICI Berlin, 7-9 March, 2013.
