How is it that American intellectuals, who had for 150 years worried about the deleterious effects of affluence, more recently began to emphasize pleasure, playfulness, and symbolic exchange as the essence of a vibrant consumer culture? The New York intellectuals of the 1930s rejected any serious or analytical discussion, let alone appreciation, of popular culture, which they viewed as morally questionable. Beginning in the 1950s, however, new perspectives emerged outside and within the United States that challenged this dominant thinking. Consuming Pleasures reveals how a group of writers shifted attention from condemnation to critical appreciation, critiqued cultural hierarchies and moralistic approaches, and explored the symbolic processes by which individuals and groups communicate. Historian Daniel Horowitz traces the emergence of these new perspectives through a series of intellectual biographies. With writers and readers from the United States at the center, the story begins in Western Europe in the early 1950s and ends in the early 1970s, when American intellectuals increasingly appreciated the rich inventiveness of popular culture. Drawing on sources both familiar and newly discovered, this transnational intellectual history plays familiar works off each other in fresh ways. Among those whose work is featured are Jürgen Habermas, Roland Barthes, Umberto Eco, Walter Benjamin, C. L. R. James, David Riesman and Marshall McLuhan, Richard Hoggart, members of London's Independent Group, Stuart Hall, Paddy Whannel, Tom Wolfe, Herbert Gans, Susan Sontag, Reyner Banham, and Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown.

Nessuno vorrebbe essere stressato, inefficiente o con i conti in rosso. Ma a volte lo siamo. E anche se nelle nostre scelte ci illudiamo di essere razionali, in realtà siamo più simili ai Peanuts: insicuri come Charlie Brown, umorali come Lucy, egocentrici come Snoopy. Eppure esiste il modo per spingerci nella direzione giusta. Quale? Ce lo spiega Matteo Motterlini in questo libro che, prendendo spunto dai mitici personaggi di Schulz, mostra come creare un ambiente in grado di cambiare in meglio i nostri comportamenti e anche il Paese in cui viviamo: dalla trasparenza delle istituzioni all'accessibilità delle informazioni, fino all'uso dell'enorme quantità di dati a nostra disposizione, Motterlini si muove tra esperimenti sul campo e nuovi modelli di governo applicati in diversi Paesi del mondo, per spiegare come possiamo prendere le decisioni migliori per il nostro portafoglio e il nostro benessere. Perché, soprattutto oggi, "abbiamo bisogno di ricondurre al mondo reale i modelli economici su cui abbiamo costruito un sistema di vita che sta collassando. Solo così potremo trovare nuovi strumenti per risolvere i problemi anziché complicarli".

Dieser utopische und zugleich realistische Roman, der die Zukunft der Menschheit in ähnlicher Weise entwirft wie Huxleys "Schöne neue Welt" oder Orwells "1984" mündet in die private wie kollektive Katastrophe. »Die Welt schien zu bersten vor endgültiger Unersättlichkeit. In Fetzen gingen ‚Stücke der Seele‘, die der flammende Wirbel des mit knabenhaftem Hirn vermischten Alkohols in unbekannte Gegenden verstreute.« Der Held, ein junger polnischer Adliger, wartet auf den Eintritt ins Leben. Leben bedeutet für diesen jungen Mann erst einmal die Welt der Erotik, in die ihn eine erfahrene Fürstin einführt. Genezyps unerfüllbare Leidenschaft zu der Schauspielerin Persy lässt ihn zum Mörder an einem vermeintlichen Nebenbuhler werden. Die schrittweise Auflösung Genezyps ist eng mit dem allgemeinen gesellschaftlichen Zerfall verknüpft.
