Ben Gook 
Libidinal Economies of Crisis Times 
The Psychic Life of Contemporary Capitalism

What is a libidinal economy? How are we psychically hooked into the circuits of the capitalist economy? The contributors to this book question the relevance of a concept that began reappearing in critiques and analyses of capitalist societies since the financial crisis of August 2007. The chapters stretch back to the term’s introduction with Freud via Lyotard through to the ways online platforms put our psyches to work. »Libidinal Economies of Crisis Times« is a collection of essays by leading scholars about the connections between economies, pleasure, and desires.
