Disintegration: Bad Love, Collective Suicide, and the Idols of Imperial Twilight
Volume Two of Sacrifice and Self-Defeat

Marx. Durkheim. Critical Theory. Disintegration brings sociology, psychoanalysis, and dialectics together to offer a rousing critique of modern life.

Together again for the first time, Marx and Durkheim join forces in the pages of Disintegration: Bad Love, Collective Suicide, and the Idols of Imperial Twilight for a dialectical exploration of the moral economy of neoliberalism, animated, as it is not only by the capitalist chase for surplus value, but also by an immortal vortex of sacred powers. Classical sociology and psychoanalysis are reconstituted within Hegelian social ontology and dialectical method that differentiates between the ephemeral and free and the eternal and fixed aspects of modern life.
