Description

Science and capitalism are two dominant forces of contemporary society. Science has effectively taken control of the material world whilst capitalism has effectively structured it. Capitalism marches across the globe reducing culture to consumption, whilst science slowly excludes metaphysics and creativity from all constructive dialogue. And philosophy, faced by such challenges, has crumbled, has proved itself incapable of coherent critique or alternative visions. The purpose of this book is to begin the work of recasting philosophy to face these challenges. Based on an original synthesis of the work of Marx and Bergson, the key theorists of capitalism and creativity, the book presents an analysis of contemporary science and capital.
