Against Capitalist Education
What is Education for?
The birth of a revolutionary art of world-creation.
Out there in the so-called real world the education system is being crushed by the demands of capitalism and, in turn, is crushing those who pass through it, reducing them, diminishing them. The dream of the economic functioning unit.
How do we break this? We need alternatives but not just one or two. We need the freedom and education to generate a trillion possibilities. An education system that is as broad as it is deep, that brings back a different type of thinking and a new use of fiction.
This book signals the return of the dialogue and the conversation as the ground out of which new realities are born, the root out of which new alternatives are nurtured and explored.

An examination of why modern art can be easier to appreciate than modern music.
An analysis of the dead man working and the way in which capital is now colonizing life itself.
A theoretical investigation into the culture of precarious work, digital consumption and personal flexibility, calling for a counter-discourse of resistance.
Argues that the awkwardness of our age is a key to understanding human experience.
Argues that our fascination with cold and ruthless television characters reflects a broken social contract.
