9789089648518: The Spell of Capital: Reification and Spectacle

This book explores the tradition, impact, and contemporary relevance of two key ideas from Western Marxism: Georg Lukács’s concept of reification, in which social aspects of humanity are viewed in objectified terms, and Guy Debord’s concept of the spectacle, where the world is packaged and presented to consumers in uniquely mediated ways. Bringing the original, yet now often forgotten, theoretical contexts for these terms back to the fore, Samir Gandesha and Johan Hartle offer a new look at the importance of Western Marxism from its early days to the present moment—and reveal why Marxist cultural critique must continue to play a vital role in any serious sociological analysis of contemporary society.
