What is the relationship between capitalism and mental health? In his most unsettling book to date, Franco Bifo Berardi embarks on an exhilarating journey through philosophy, psychoanalysis and current events, searching for the social roots of the mental malaise of our age.
Spanning an array of horrors the Aurora Joker killer; Anders Breivik; American school massacres; the suicide epidemic in Korea and Japan; and the recent spate of austerity suicides in Europe Heroes dares to explore the darkest shadow cast by the contemporary obsession with relentless competition and hyper-connectivity. In a volume that crowns four decades of radical intellectual work, Berardi develops the psychoanalytical insights of his friend Flix Guattari and proposes dystopian irony as a strategy to disentangle ourselves from the deadly embrace of absolute capitalism.
