    Sarah Brouillette explores the emergence of social scientific studies of the importance of creativity and innovation for the economy — a link that has become a mantra in the twenty-first century.

  5. Finance Depends on Resistance, Finance is Resistance, and Anyway, Resistance is Futile.Max Haiven - 2013 - Mediations 26 (1-2).
    What would the resistance to financialization look like? What if the concept of resistance is already a deeply flawed one? What if finance already depends on resistance to continue its expansion? What if finance is already a form of resistance? Max Haiven argues that we need to constitute a new political rhetoric that more accurately names our political circumstances.

    From Hilferding to Hayek, Schumpeter to Keynes, and Galbraith to Daniel Bell, and in surprisingly congruent ways given their differences of outlook and opinion, many of the most prominent and influential economists and social theorists of the twentieth century imagined the outcome of technological and knowledge society to be the end of capitalism.

  8. The Death and Life of the Avant-Garde: Or, Modernism and Biopolitics.Evan Mauro - 2013 - Mediations 26 (1-2).
    Evan Mauro offers an alternative genealogy of the twentieth-century avant-garde organized around the concept of “life” at its core. While a growing consensus has found the seeds of neoliberalism in mid-century vanguards, Mauro takes this history back further, finding a struggle between the avant-garde and the structure of the state constitutive of twentieth-century politics.

  12. Back to Hegel?Robert Pippin - 2013 - Mediations 26 (1-2).
    Robert Pippin reviews Slavoj Žižek’s Less than Nothing, a serious attempt to re-actualize Hegel in the light of Lacanian metapsychology. But does Žižek’s attempt to think Hegel with Lacan produce, as Žižek hopes, a political figuration adequate to the present? Or does it land us rather in the Hegelian zoo, along with such well-known specimens as the Beautiful Soul, the Unhappy Consciousness, and The Knight of Virtue?

  14. Conscience and the Common.Imre Szeman - 2013 - Mediations 26 (1-2).
    It is easy to dismiss the appeal to conscience as liberal self-delusion. But conscience has been a paradigmatic concept in Western philosophy, an amorphous yet essential space in which the connections and conjunctions between individual and social take place. Imre Szeman speculates on whether the Left needs something like an idea of conscience in its arsenal of ideas.
