Design Thinking and the New Spirit of Capitalism: Sociological Reflections on Innovation Culture

Design Thinking and the New Spirit of Capitalism: Sociological Reflections on Innovation Culture by Tim Seitz
English | EPUB | 2020 | 116 Pages | ISBN : 3030317145 | 0.66 MB

An ethnographic study on Design Thinking, this book offers profound insights into the popular innovation method, centrally exploring how design thinking’s practice relates to the vast promises surrounding it. Through a close study of a Berlin-based innovation agency, Tim Seitz finds both mundane knowledge practices and promises of transformation. He unpacks the relationships between these discourses and practices and undertakes an exploratory movement that leads him from practice theory to pragmatism. In the course of this movement, Seitz makes design thinking understandable as a phenomenon of what Boltanski and Chiapello described as the “new spirit of capitalism”—that is, an ideological structure that incorporates criticism and therefore strengthens capitalism.

English | November 30th, 2018 | ISBN: 1785358006 | 164 pages | EPUB | 1.89 MB

Capitalism on Campus examines the university's journey into market hands and the sexual sell-off of students, which has come with it. It raises critical questions about the forces which conjoin higher education to both sex work and declining academic freedom. In so doing it questions the role our institutions of learning have in the cultivation of resistance to capitalism. This is a call to rediscover the emancipatory potential of knowledge.
