Interview with Slavoj Žižek on “Like A Thief In Broad Daylight: Power in the Era of Post-Human Capitalism”

Slavoj Žižek and William Davies: Like a Thief in Broad Daylight

25 September 2018

“In recent years, techno-scientific progress has started to utterly transform our world – changing it almost beyond recognition. In his new book, Like a Thief in Broad Daylight (Penguin) Slavoj Zizek turns to look at the brave new world of Big Tech, revealing how, with each new wave of innovation, we find ourselves moving closer and closer to a bizarrely literal realisation of Marx’s prediction that ‘all that is solid melts into air.’ With the automation of work, the virtualisation of money, the dissipation of class communities and the rise of immaterial, intellectual labour, the global capitalist edifice is beginning to crumble, more quickly than ever before-and it is now on the verge of vanishing entirely. But what will come next? Against a backdrop of constant socio-technological upheaval, how could any kind of authentic change take place?”
