Consumer society and the 24/7 universe
Keywords: Capitalism, consumer society, 24/7 universe
AbstractIn the book 24/4: Late capitalism and the ends of sleep, Jonathan Crary presents several examples to discuss the interferences of the capitalism and technological development on the humankind. The intense relationship with gadgets, the submission to the labor logic and the speed of productivity, as well as the man’s devotion to material consumption are highlighted by the author as collateral effects of the neoliberal globalization. The 24/7 universe defended by Crary surrounds our lives and binds us to a restless reality.
