Culture on Drugs: Narco-Cultural Studies of High Modernity
Manchester University Press, 2006 - 219 Seiten
Never has a reconsideration of the place of drugs in our culture been more urgent than it is today. Culture on Drugs addresses themes such as the nature of consciousness, language and the body, alienation, selfhood, the image and virtuality and the nature/culture dyad and everyday life. It then explores how these are expressed in the work of key figures such as Freud, Benjamin, Sartre, Derrida, Foucault and Deleuze, arguing that the ideas and concepts by which modernity has attained its measure of self-understanding are themselves, in various ways, the products of encounters with drugs and their effects.
