Excerpt: /227/ Reading Club: All That Is Solid

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-2yuve-1142f48

On modernity’s contradictions.
 
In this month’s Reading Club, we discuss the introduction to Marshall Berman’s marvellous All That Is Solid Melts Into Air.
 
This is an excerpt. For the full episode, subscribe for $10/mo at patreon.com/bungacast
 
Can we revive, as Berman intends, the truly dialectical, 19th century attitude to modernity? What value is there in talking about “modernity” rather than “capitalism”? And how to we recognise possibilities for transcending today’s impasses, where the question of “modernity” isn’t even on the table?
 
The final Reading Club of 2021 will be on Eva Illouz’s Cold Intimacies.
