Based on an original synthesis of the work of Marx and Bergson, the key theorists of capitalism and creativity, the book presents an astonishing analysis of contemporary science and capital. Exploring in particular genetics, evolutionary theory, commodification and class consciousness, Philosophy in the Age of Science and Capital injects life back into contemporary politics, ethics and aesthetics.
