Reviews

"This ambitious but always lucid book aims to reopen the conceptual framework of capitalism." - Le Monde "This work is an initiatory voyage towards communism." - L'Humanite "Frederic Lordon is one of the most audacious contemporary left-wing economists." - Le Nouvel Observateur "At a time when all workers are required to show "passion" for their jobs, Willing Slaves of Capital is a crucial re-affirmation of the importance of Spinoza's philosophy for understanding contemporary forms of servitude. Lordon persuasively and elegantly shows that the only way to break free is to hold onto a cold and exceptionless determinism: hope is pointless, regret is meaningless, yet change can still be made to happen" - Mark Fisher, author of Capitalist Realism "Lordon effectively and brilliantly demonstrates that Spinoza is less a precursor to Marx than a necessary complement. Only Spinoza's examination of the production of desire can answer the question that is at the core of Marxism: Why do workers work for capital rather than their own liberation?'" - Jason Read, University of Southern Maine
