  1. The Immaterial.Andre Gorz - 2010 - Seagull Books.
    In _The Immaterial_,_ _French social philosopher André Gorz argues, in his finely-tuned and polemical style, that the economic boom that accelerated in the 1990s and crashed so spectacularly in 2008 was based largely on an immaterial consumption of symbols and ideas, as capitalism tried to overcome the crisis of the formally industrial regime by throwing itself into a new, so-called knowledge economy. In this, the last full-length theoretical work Gorz completed before his death, he argues instead for the creation of (...)

    Security: Against What? For What? With What?André Gorz - 1983 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 1983 (58):158-168.
    Security police, state security services, security measures, security politics…a dreadful semantic chain. Everything stubbornly conservative, repressive, antithetical to freedom is expressed in the concept of security. The meaning always implies security for an established order against whatever seems to threaten, disturb or endanger it from without or from within. One can secure, reassure, insure or protect Movements, associations and networks within which a part of the population unites spontaneously can be channeled, controlled or combatted. Peace, order and security are implied. (...)

    The American Model and the Future of the Left.André Gorz - 1985 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 1985 (64):117-121.
    The economic policies of the French Left are based on the hypothesis that the modernization of the industrial apparatus and the resurgence of the spirit of business enterprise are indispensable preconditions for the resumption of economic growth and a major reduction of unemployment. To support this line of argument, many experts (of all shades of political opinion), refer to Reagan's America. What exactly is this experience about? Is it a possible model? Can capitalism resolve its employment and distribution problems when, (...)

    Against Confusing Autonomous Activity with Wage Labor.André Gorz - 1985 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 1985 (64):123-124.
    In the face of a technological revolution which massively reduces the quantity of work demanded, there are the following alternatives: 1) Either a smaller and smaller core of full-time workers monopolizes the interesting jobs and marginalizes the majority of the population, with the unions degenerating into corporatism elitist and conservative organizations; or, 2) wage labor is redistributed in such a way that all people can work less; work then ceases to be the central focus of life and the main source (...)

    The Socialism of Tomorrow.André Gorz - 1986 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 1986 (67):199-206.
    The present crisis threatens most of the values, certainties and institutions on which industrial societies have been built for a century and a half. The nature of work, social relations, the place of professional work is the life of the individual, the foundations of the economy, the function of capital and that of trade unions, etc. are all being critically reexamined. No traditional political party has yet evaluated the threat and the promise implied by this crisis. All have yet to (...)

    Économie de la connaissance, exploitation des savoirs.André Gorz - 2004 - Multitudes 1 (1):205-216.
    In this interview with Yann Moulier Boutang and Carlo Vercellone, André Gorz elaborates on three crucial points of his analysis of the significance of the mutation inherent in the concept of cognitive capitalism: first, the redefinition of the mechanisms of exploitation and the processes of emancipation, since when labor is no longer measurable in units of time, and when self-exploitation takes on a central function in the process of valorization, the production of subjectivity becomes a central site of conflicts; second (...)
