The Making of the Indebted Man

Maurizio Lazzarato's The Making of the Indebted Man is the newest addition to the Semiotext(e) / Intervention series. Described as an "Essay on the Neoliberal Condition", the book discusses the system of debt and the ways in which we are collectively encouraged to comply into it.

The debtor-creditor relation, which is at the heart of this book, sharpens mechanisms of exploitation and domination indiscriminately, since, in it, there is no distinction between workers and the unemployed, consumers and producers, working and non-working populations, between retirees and welfare recipients. They are all “debtors,” guilty and responsible in the eyes of capital, which has become the Great, the Universal, Creditor.
