Thinking and acting against emotional manipulation
We live in a society where technology is taking a more central role than ever before, where noise, overstimulation and aggressive speed are prized above all else. A world in which our emotions are being silently dominated in every aspect of life.
To counteract this troubling scenario, Carlos Javier González Serrano proposes we apply a philosophy of resistance that allows us to monitor the way our attention is held. Standing up to what he terms the ‘emotocracy’ (the way consumer society dictates our emotions), the author encourages us to commit to a new way of experiencing desire in order to become more conscious of our own personal freedom and defeat modern social malaises. By thinking and acting, an intellectual revolution can happen. If we refuse to see people as passive subjects we’ll gain real agency – agency that will help us reimagine and transform our own realities.


Highlights A Philosophy of Resistance

An enlightening and stirring text which offers an iron-clad defence of philosophy as a radical and dissident way of thinking – a healthy antidote to the reality in which we currently find ourselves.
