    Inhaltsangabe

    Penguin presents the audiobook of Like a Thief in Broad Daylight by Slavoj Žižek, read by Jamie East.  

    In recent years, techno-scientific progress has started to utterly transform our world - changing it almost beyond recognition. In this extraordinary new audiobook, renowned philosopher Slavoj Zizek turns to look at the brave new world of Big Tech, revealing how, with each new wave of innovation, we find ourselves moving closer and closer to a bizarrely literal realisation of Marx's prediction that 'all that is solid melts into air'. With the automation of work, the virtualisation of money, the dissipation of class communities and the rise of immaterial, intellectual labour, the global capitalist edifice is beginning to crumble, more quickly than ever before - and it is now on the verge of vanishing entirely. 

    But what will come next? Against a backdrop of constant sociotechnological upheaval, how could any kind of authentic change take place? In such a context, Zizek argues, there can be no great social triumph - because lasting revolution has already come into the scene, like a thief in broad daylight, stealing into sight right before our very eyes. What we must do now is wake up and see it.   

    Urgent as ever, Like a Thief in Broad Daylight illuminates the new dangers as well as the radical possibilities thrown up by today's technological and scientific advances and their electrifying implications for us all.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Zižek is a thinker who regards nothing as outside his field: the result is deeply interesting and provocative." (Guardian

    "Žižek leaves no social or cultural phenomenon untheorized, and is master of the counterintuitive observation." (New Yorker)

    Radical approach with a lot of tangence

    Zizek offers a radical approach to the burning questions of our age such as global warming, tech giants, identity politics, refugees etc
    I'd normally give this book a 3 out of 5, because even though the book is short, the last two chapters are extremely tangent to the topics at hand. After talking about the metoo movement and how to approach consent, he dives into an endless monologue on sex and in the last chapter he does some "leninist" analysis of movies such as Black Panther and La La Land that seems totally off-topic. I'd expect a wrap-up and conclusion instead.
    But the first few chapters he dives into really important topics with a radical courage and offers a new and interesting point of view that we certainly need more of. Out of respect for that, I still go with 4 stars instead of 3.
