»So pointiert, faktengesättigt und geistesgeschichtlich inspiriert kommt keine zweite Analyse unserers Wirtschaftssystems daher.« Christian Geyer, FAZ
is Professor of German Literature, Cultural and Media Studies at Humboldt University Berlin and Permanent Visiting Professor at Princeton University. He has published numerous books and articles and has also translated major contemporary French philosophers such as Gilles Deleuze and Jean-François Lyotard.
»Since the eighteenth century, market mechanisms and stirrings of capital are perceived as mysteries, the solution of which the self-enlightenment of modern societies measures itself against. This is particularly true for movements and structures of modern financial economics.«
