GLENN RIKOWSKI PAPERS @ ACADEMIA

From the first week in February 2014, I started to put up my papers at Academia. This will be a slow process, no doubt (as I don’t find it very easy to use), but in time I aim to have most of my online papers on this mainstream site.

My full CV is also there, and will be updated as and when changes occur.

Neoliberalism

Neoliberalism

THE NEW WAY OF THE WORLD: ON NEOLIBERAL SOCIETY 

By Pierre Dardot and Christian Laval 

——————–

——————–

Pierre Dardot and Christian Laval’s acute analysis of neoliberalism

——————–

Exploring the genesis of neoliberalism, and the political and economic circumstances of its deployment, Pierre Dardot and Christian Laval dispel numerous common misconceptions. Neoliberalism is neither a return to classical liberalism nor the restoration of “pure” capitalism. To misinterpret neoliberalism is to fail to understand what is new about it: far from viewing the market as a natural given that limits state action, neoliberalism seeks to construct the market and make the firm a model for governments. Only once this is grasped will its opponents be able to meet the unprecedented political and intellectual challenge it poses.

——————–

“To understand these debates [on neoliberalism], the book by Christian Laval and Pierre Dardot on the ‘neoliberal society’ offers us analytical keys. This monument of scholarship draws on the history of ideas, philosophy and sociology.”
– Le Monde

“Extremely scholarly, this book is an insistent invitation to push theoretical and social critique of the present order beyond the standard analyses.”

– Le Monde diplomatique

——————–

Christian Laval is Professor of Sociology at the Université de Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense. His other books include L’Ambition sociologique: Saint-Simon, Comte, Tocqueville, Marx, Durkheim, Weber; Jeremy Bentham, les artifices du capitalism; L’École n’est pas une entreprise: Le néo-libéralisme à l’assaut de l’enseignement public; and L’Homme économique: Essai sur les racines du néolibéralisme.

Pierre Dardot is a philosopher and specialist in Hegel and Marx. His previous books include Sauver Marx?: Empire, multitude, travail immatériel (with Christian Laval and El Mouhoub Mouhoud) and Marx, prénom: Karl (with Christian Laval).
