About the Author

Emanuele Coccia is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the EHESS in Paris. He is the author of Sensible Life: A Micro-Ontology of the Image. With Giorgio Agamben, he is editor of a comprehensive anthology of texts on angels across the Abrahamic traditions.


"This short, unsettling book offers new perspectives on the moral place of things in the cosmology of industrial modernity. In making his radical argument, Coccia questions many of our habits of thought, by showing that the love of things--crystallized in fashion, advertising and consumption--reflects a search for a form of political normativity which has for too long been seen as illicit, illusory and immoral."--Arjun Appadurai, New York University
