About the Author

Yann Moulier Boutang is professor of economics atUniversite de Technologie de Compiegne. Ed Emery is the translator.


"The most systematic and comprehensive account of the economic position developed by the autonomist school of thought." Political Studies Review "Valuable for the way it prompts readers into asking uneasy questions about the nature of the economic system we live in." LSE Politics Blog "What drives contemporary capitalism? Moulier Boutang provides a convincing answer in his account of the rise of a turbocharged complex of practices which he calls cognitive capitalism which is intent on calling the collective intelligence provided by brainpower and computing power to its cause. A theoretical must for anyone who wants to understand the modern world." Nigel Thrift, University of Warwick "Yann Moulier Boutang presents a bold analysis of the ongoing 'great transformation' of capitalism. Writing from the perspective of the socialization of labor, he offers a systematic examination of the dense, complex, and contradictory relation between emergent modes of capitalist control and appropriation and collective cognitive labor-power expressed through new information and communication technologies. This new terrain of confrontation conceptually and practically subverts our received understandings of labor, property, and value. Relations between material and non-material, mental and manual, economic and social, individual and society are recast in unprecedented ways that transform the conditions and possibilities of social life. Cognitive Capitalism is essential reading." Dale Tomich, Binghamton University "This book counters the risk society's negative externalities with the possibility of positive externalities of information. This is cognitive capitalism's new, networked public space, an informational commons. In the terminal crisis of neoliberalism, Moulier Boutang gives us a new critical political economy - and a media theory - of hope." Scott Lash, Goldsmiths, University of London
