The Culture Industry - Adorno

From the wiki:
>The term culture industry was coined by the critical theorists Theodor Adorno (1903–1969) and Max Horkheimer (1895–1973), and was presented as critical vocabulary in the chapter “The Culture Industry: Enlightenment as Mass Deception”, of the book Dialectic of Enlightenment (1944), wherein they proposed that popular culture is akin to a factory producing standardized cultural goods — films, radio programmes, magazines, etc. — that are used to manipulate mass society into passivity. Consumption of the easy pleasures of popular culture, made available by the mass communications media, renders people docile and content, no matter how difficult their economic circumstances. The inherent danger of the culture industry is the cultivation of false psychological needs that can only be met and satisfied by the products of capitalism; thus Adorno and Horkheimer especially perceived mass-produced culture as dangerous to the more technically and intellectually difficult high arts. In contrast, true psychological needs are freedom, creativity, and genuine happiness, which refer to an earlier demarcation of human needs, established by Herbert Marcuse. (See Eros and Civilization, 1955).

Adventures in Transcendental Materialism - Adrian Johnston

>Since Bacon, Gallileo and Descartes in the early 17th century, the relations between science and religion as well as mind and body have remained volatile fault lines of conflict. The controversies surrounding these relations are as alive and pressing now as at any point over the course of the past four centuries.


>Adrian Johnston’s transcendental materialism offers a new theoretical approach to these issues. Arming himself with resources provided by German idealism, Marxism, psychoanalysis, the life sciences and contemporary philosophical developments, Johnston formulates an account of subjectivity that, although being both materialist and naturalist, does full justice to human beings as irreducible to natural matter alone. At the same time he argues against relapses into idealisms, dualisms and spiritualisms.

History of Neoliberalism - David Harvey

>Neoliberalism - the doctrine that market exchange is an ethic in itself, capable of acting as a guide for all human action - has become dominant in both thought and practice throughout much of the world since 1970 or so.Its spread has depended upon a reconstitution of state powers such that privatization, finance, and market processes are emphasized. State interventions in the economy are minimized, while the obligations of the state to provide for the welfare of its citizens are diminished. David Harvey, authorof 'The New Imperialism' and 'The Condition of Postmodernity', here tells the political-economic story of where neoliberalization came from and how it proliferated on the world stage. While Thatcher and Reagan are often cited as primary authors of this neoliberal turn, Harvey shows how a complex offorces, from Chile to China and from New York City to Mexico City, have also played their part. In addition he explores the continuities and contrasts between neoliberalism of the Clinton sort and the recent turn towards neoconservative imperialism of George W. Bush. Finally, through criticalengagement with this history, Harvey constructs a framework not only for analyzing the political and economic dangers that now surround us, but also for assessing the prospects for the more socially just alternatives being advocated by many oppositional movements.

Georges Politzer - Elementary Principles of Philosophy

For anyone who's looking to get into elementary Marxist theories, it is written by several students of Georges Politzer in the Workers University of Paris (l'Université Ouvrière de Paris) from 1935 to 36, the book is one of my favorites, it is a structured collection of notes from a marxist theory course i think and it explains in a very simple way how to apply Marxism to everyday life.

As pdf I only have the English, Turkish and French versions of the book, but I'm sure you can find it in other languages like Spanish or Italian if you want to read it in your native language.

Debt: The First 5000 Years isn't explicitly leftist. It's an analysis of the role and philosophy of debt in human society from an anthropological perspective. However, it contains within it an insightful critique of capitalism. In short, it utterly destroys with the weight of 5,000 years of history, both the moral and logical philosophical underpinnings of liberal economic theory. It expertly wipes away false assumptions so deeply entrenched in modern culture, so internalized in modern consciousness that you didn't even know you had them.

Das Kapital is good theory, but it's written for 19th century German Academics. Debt is recent, well written, engaging, and a pleasure to read. I cannot recommend it enough to normies, dilettantes, and serious theorists alike.
