|Name||The Society of the Spectacle|
A linen bound hardcover second edition of our new translation of Debord's The Society of the Spectacle.
Debord describes and critiques the way we live. The power in these ideas lies in their ability to question, identify, and name the common assumptions of the present. Developing the concept of The Spectacle, he describes the “gaze” of contemporary society. From its publication just before, and ultimately influencing the May 1968 revolt in Paris and Occupy Wall Street, this book continues to transform a wide range of progressive philosophical and political movements, most notably anti-capitalism, postmodernism, marxism, and anarchism.
This new translation brings a concrete edge to the text, elaborating upon the original, and adding annotations. Bringing fifty years of prominent radical thinking back to the text, from Baudrillard to Odell to Zuboff—it’s clear that Debord’s book is more relevant in the era of social media, the attention economy, and the emergence of Surveillance Capitalism than ever before.
A new an revised English edition by Ron. Adams.
