The Weight of All Flesh

On the Subject-Matter of Political Economy

Eric Santner and Edited by Kevis Goodman

The Berkeley Tanner Lectures

  • Offers a new interpretation of Marx's critique of political economy by situating its object in genealogical proximity to the political theology of sovereignty
  • Presents a new argument about the limits of secularization
  • Links Freud's understanding of the drive to Marx's understanding of value-producing labor to develop a new understanding of forms and experiences of embodied subjectivity in modern capitalist societies
