The Psychopathologies of
Cognitive Capitalism: Part Two. Edited by Warren Neidich.

Book launch and talk with Matteo Pasquinelli, Warren Neidich, Patricia
Reed and Liss C. Werner.

Matteo Pasquinelli, Warren Neidich, Patricia Reed and Liss C. Werner
will be present to discuss the book and its broader social, political,
economic and psychological implications.

We are currently transitioning from an economic system dominated by
artisanal and industrial production to one ruled by information with
its emphasis on communication, affect and cognition. Not without
controversy, the term cognitive capitalism has been coined to describe
these new sets of conditions. The Psychopathologies of Cognitive
Capitalism: Part Two continues to investigate, quite intensely, such
topics as abstract and immaterial labor, informational capital, real
and formal subsumption and the social production of surplus value.
This volume will begin to give new meaning to the word cognitive,
understanding its materialist connotations set in an extended field in
which world, brain and mind form an interconnected complex assemblage.
Furthermore it employs a developmental point of view utilizing such
terms as neural plasticity and epigenesis, in order to understand how
cognitive capitalism first establishes dominion over distributions of
sensibility and insensibility and then acting as a neuro-modulating
force directs the building of the brains neural network architectures
which has implications for the freedom of thought and contemplation.
In the end this book questions whether 19th century concepts, forms of
collectivity and calls to action are up to the task of mounting a
formidable challenge to these new normalizing and subsuming
apparatuses. Its aim is to formulate a new glossary of terms upon
which to build a cognitive activism and dissensus to meet the
challenges of the 21st century.
