Capitalist Realism

by Adam Robbert

Capitalist Realism book cover

Mark Fisher’s Capitalist Realism has been hailed by Slavoj Žižek as “simply the best diagnosis of our predicament we have!” Fisher’s book is a thorough critique and speculation upon capitalism in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis and the perpetually ongoing ecological devastation wrought by industrialization. For Fisher, the premise of late capitalism is described by what he terms a “business ontology,” a stark term that describes the way in which every element of our world has become enfolded within a “business reality system” that subordinates all values into the cut and press of the market.
