Zero Squared #129: Value, Crisis, and the Writing on the Wall

Anselm Jappe is the author of several major works of critical theory, most famously a book entitled simply “Guy Debord” which is a critical biography of the famous leader of the Situationist International, and is a contributor to the German ‘critique of value’ journal Krisis. In 2015 Jappe was listed by Le Magazine littéraire as one of ‘Thirty Names in French Thought to Watch Out For’ and in 2014 he was the subject of a thirty-minute radio interview on France Culture. His books have received international interest and been translated into a number of languages, including English, and his most recent book is The Writing on the Wall for Zero Books.

If you’re a current member of the Zero Books club I want to remind you that we’re moving the Inside Zero Books podcast from the Zero Books blog to Patreon. This will make it easier to get the member’s only podcast.

I want to urge you to pick up Anselm Jappe’s The Writing on the Wall, and you might also get ahold of Philip Cunliffe’s Lenin Lives, and, of course, if you haven’t read it already get yourself a copy of Angela Nagle’s Kill All Normies. It’s guaranteed to transform any leftist get together into a struggle session.
