Based on an original synthesis of the work of Marx and Bergson, the key theorists of capitalism and creativity, the book presents an astonishing analysis of contemporary science and capital. Exploring in particular genetics, evolutionary theory, commodification and class consciousness, Philosophy in the Age of Science and Capital injects life back into contemporary politics, ethics and aesthetics.

About the Author:

Gregory Dale Adamson took his PhD on Bergson at Monash University, Australia and now lives in New Zealand

Review:

"Philosophy in the Age of Science and Capital argues persuasively that scientific and capitalistic discourse have constructed human beings as machines for choosing and acting but that a new understanding of human beings, based on an ethics and aesthetics of sensibility, is possible."—Robin Durie

“Adamson calls for to a re-examination of the role of consciousness in conditioning our current state of affairs. Specifically, he urges us to consider the metaphysical position of Henri Bergson” –Philosophy in Review, Fall 2004

'...Adamson's book contributes decisively to a future deterritorialisation of Bergson's metaphysical project into a more robust materialist politics.' (De Selby Metamute)

''...Adamson persuasively constructs a case that makes the idea of creating a 'Bergson School' - a movement that would inject some life back into the tired reflections of three generations of Frankfurters - seem both plausible and necessary.""he (Adamson) has produced a book...that fundamentally challenges and transforms the way we think about the future of philosophy in an environment where it is being constrained by philosophers who really want to be scientists and logicians." The British Society for Phenomenology 2006, Volume 37, No. 1 (Iain MacKenzie)

'...Adamson's book contributes decisively to a future deterritorialisation of Bergson's metaphysical project into a more robust materialist politics.' (Sanford Lakoff Metamute)
