Critique in a neoliberal age

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Critique in a Neoliberal Age brings a critique of ideology to main debate within
economic sociology, populism studies, the neoliberal university, therapy culture,
contemporary intimacies and feminism. Over the last decades, neoliberalism has
worked to lift social protections and political regulations from the market and to
identify modernity with capitalism itself. It has also engaged in an ideological project to screen alternative measurements of progress. Liberal and social democracy have been effectively disabled as grounds for weighing the costs of neoliberal predations. This volume examines the strategies through which neoliberalism has reconstituted and de-politicized liberal precepts such as universal justice, private right and a social democratic project responsive to needs. As such it will appeal to scholars and students of sociology and social and cultural theory, political and social philosophy, politics, cultural studies and feminist thought.
