From Conventionalism to Social Authenticity: Heidegger’s Anyone and Contemporary Social Theory

From Conventionalism to Social Authenticity: Heidegger’s Anyone and Contemporary Social Theory By Prof. Dr. Hans Bernhard Schmid, Dr. Gerhard Thonhauser
English | PDF | 2017 | 277 Pages | ISBN : 3319568647 | 3.34 MB

This edited volume offers a new approach to understanding social conventions by way of Martin Heidegger. It connects the philosopher's conceptions of the anyone, everydayness, and authenticity with an analysis and critique of social normativity. Heidegger’s account of the anyone is ambiguous. Some see it as a good description of human sociality, others think of it as an important critique of modern mass society.

Filling the Void: Emotion, Capitalism and Social Media

Filling the Void: Emotion, Capitalism and Social Media by Marcus Gilroy-Ware
English | April 20th, 2017 | ASIN: B06Y2G1N24, ISBN: 1910924946 | 228 pages | AZW3 | 0.86 MB

Filling The Void is a book about how the cultures and psychology of social media use fit within a broader landscape of life under capitalism. It argues that social media use is often a psychological response to the need for pleasure and comfort that results from the stresses of life under postmodern capitalism, rather than being a driver of new behaviours as newer technologies are often said to be.
