DESCRIPTION

A galvanizing critique of the forces vying for our consideration – and our private info – that redefines what we consider as productiveness, reconnects us with the setting, and divulges all that we have been too distracted to see about ourselves and our world Nothing is tougher to do today than nothing. However in a world the place our price is set by our 24/7 information productiveness . . . doing nothing could also be our most essential type of resistance.┬áSo argues artist and critic Jenny Odell on this subject information to doing nothing (at the very least as capitalism defines it). Odell sees our consideration as probably the most valuable – and overdrawn – useful resource we have now. As soon as we are able to begin paying a brand new form of consideration, she writes, we are able to undertake bolder types of political motion, reimagine humankind’s position within the setting, and arrive at extra significant understandings of happiness and progress.┬áRemoved from the straightforward anti-technology screed, or the back-to-nature meditation we hear so typically, The right way to Do Nothing is an motion plan for considering exterior of capitalist narratives of effectivity and techno-determinism. Provocative, well timed, and completely persuasive, this guide is a four-course meal within the age of Soylent.
