Based on the publisher’s description, it seems like it would fit in really well with Holland’s ideas about minor marxism — specifically its three dependencies: work, consumption, and debt, all of which I mention here and here.

One Response to Lazzarato — The Making of the Indebted Man

  1. Definitely! Something interesting, Lazzarato claims to be anti-Marxist. This comes out most strongly in RĂ©volutions du Capitalisme. Yet, when one looks closely, it appears that they’re so incredibly marxist that he’s either quibbling with the French and Italian academic-political scene, or he’s trying be to explicitly post-Marxist.

    Lazzarato’s a bit uninventive when it comes to actually-existing political examples (for instance the federated “coordinations” that were meant to replace unions as syndicalist action groups), but his theory is extensive, top-notch, and updates a lot of Deleuze’s more philosophical references.
