What is the relationship between capitalism and mental health? Through an exhilarating mix of philosophical and psychoanalytical theory and reportage - from the suicide epidemic in Korea to the wave of American mass murders - the prominent Italian thinker Franco Berardi Bifo traces the social roots of the mental malaise of our age. His darkest and most unsettling book to date, Berardi proposes dystopian irony as a strategy to disentangle ourselves from the deadly embrace of the neoliberalism.

Reviews

"As a diagnostician, Berardi is among the sharpest." - Slate "Bifo is a master of global activism in the age of depression. His mission is to understand real existing capitalism. Sense the despair of the revolt, enjoy this brilliant 'labour of the negative'!" - Geert Lovink, Founding Director of the Institute of Network Cultures "Does more than merely scratch the surface...ultimately, Bifo advocates for the limitless power of imagination and irony as the only antidotes in a world urging to be rebuilt from scratch" - Bookslut "An exquisite reading of our historical situation." - Michael Robbins, Chicago Tribune "The sting of this hollow present is felt most acutely in our emotional life, a point driven home by Franco `Bifo' Berardi in Heroes... a densely packed work of political theory." Michael Schapira, Full Stop
