Celebricities: Media Culture and the Phenomenology of Gadget by Anthony Adler

By Anthony Adler

What turns into of existence, event, and fact within the hyperconsumeristic tradition of the twenty-first century? What occurs to the phenomenological name to head “back to the issues themselves” while this stuff, to an ever higher measure, contain a televised existence that's not ours to dwell, celebrities who're completely like us but infinitely untouchable, and uncannily pluripotent digital instruments? Combining sustained philosophical inquiry with fragmentary and experimental theoretical interventions, Anthony Curtis Adler rethinks Marxist materialism and the Heideggerian venture by way of the singular stories of overdue capitalism. In doing so, he unearths how the disarticulation of lifestyles through the commodity fetish calls for without delay a brand new thought of phenomenological process and an ontology orientated towards the novel contingency of being itself as transcendental ground.
