Connected: Or What It Means To Live In The Network Society
Sort order. Dec 18, Laura rated it liked it Shelves: being-human , cthulhu , semi-dystopian , science-fiction , literary-theory. I really wanted to like this book. Steven Shaviro was my critical literary studies professor; I learned a ton from him.
Or I think I did. It had some grea I really wanted to like this book.
It had some great passages. The myth of noir, then, is really the myth of an autonomous masculine self. In this secular world, it is no longer possible for Jesus to be betrayed and sacrificed in my place; I have to go through it all myself. I have an unnerving suspicion that Professor Shaviro predicted Twilight. Vampires today are popular commodities, probably more popular than ever, but they are not really terrifying any longer.
They are commodities that ironically embody our nostalgic yearnings for a time when not everything had been subsumed under the commodity form. In the network society, the monstrosity of capital cannot take the overly cozy and comforting shape of the vampire. It almost ends with a passage I quite like.
It does not actually represent the present, just as it does not really predict the future.

Rather, it involves both the present and future, while being reducible to neither. For science fiction is about the shadow that the future casts upon the present.
But what this has to say about living in the networked society? I do not know. Nov 23, Henry Charles rated it liked it.
