When Freud wrote his classic Civilization and its Discontents, he was concerned with repression. Modern civilization depends upon the constraint of impulse, the limiting of self expression. Today, in the time of modernity, Bauman argues, Freud's analysis no longer holds good, if it ever did. The regulation of desire turns from an irritating necessity into an assault against individual freedom. In the postmodern era, the liberty of the individual is the overriding value, the criterion in terms of which all social rules and regulations are assessed. Postmodernity is governed by the 'will to happiness': the result, however, is a sacrificing of security. The most prominent anxieties in our society today, Bauman shows, derive from the removal of security. The world is experienced as overwhelmingly uncertain, uncontrollable and frightening. Totalitarian politics frightened by its awesome power; the new social disorder frightens by its lack of consistency and direction. The very pursuit of individual happiness corrupts and undermines those systems of authority needed for a stable life. This book builds imaginatively upon Bauman's earlier contributions to social theory. It consolidates his reputation as the interpreter of postmodernity. The book will appeal to second-year undergraduates and above in sociology, cultural studies, philosophy and anthropology.

Modernity was supposed to be the period in human history when the fears that pervaded social life in the past could be left behind and human beings could at last take control of their lives and tame the uncontrolled forces of the social and natural worlds. And yet, at the dawn of the twenty-first century, we live again in a time of fear. Whether its the fear of natural disasters, the fear of environmental catastrophes or the fear of indiscriminate terrorist attacks, we live today in a state of constant anxiety about the dangers that could strike unannounced and at any moment. Fear is the name we give to our uncertainty in the face of the dangers that characterize our liquid modern age, to our ignorance of what the threat is and our incapacity to determine what can and can't be done to counter it. This new book by Zygmunt Bauman one of the foremost social thinkers of our time is an inventory of liquid modern fears. It is also an attempt to uncover their common sources, to analyse the obstacles that pile up on the road to their discovery and to examine the ways of putting them out of action or rendering them harmless. Through his brilliant account of the fears and anxieties that weigh on us today, Bauman alerts us to the scale of the task which we shall have to confront through most of the current century if we wish our fellow humans to emerge at its end feeling more secure and self-confident than we feel at its beginning.

The concept of the user is not a well-established sociological concept even though the "user" is omnipresent in our culture as someone who uses a device, a machine, the internet or a public service. Due to the close relationship between man and technology "user studies" have become very important. The papers assembled in this volume were presented at the Vth International Conference on -The Culture of the Artificial- - "The User of the Artificial" (Ascona Switzerland, Monte Verita, 23-25 April 2004). They deal with various aspects of the figure of the user."

Quello dell’incertezza è un tema che – dall’economia alla sociologia, dalla storia alla filosofia, dalla matematica alla psicologia – varie discipline hanno affrontato, soprattutto negli ultimi anni, quando le critiche dinamiche finanziarie hanno acuito la condizione di instabilità personale e collettiva, ma anche con l’emergere di crisi geopolitiche che travalicano i confini nazionali. La geografia, invece, sembra essere stata poco impegnata in riflessioni di questa natura. Questo libro si propone di delineare i caratteri e i significati di una possibile geografia dell’incertezza in riferimento all’attuale condizione geopolitica e, soprattutto, a ciò che l’ha prodotta, alle sue radici. La riflessione parte dalla definizione di incertezza attingendo alla letteratura internazionale specifica per poi, con un indispensabile approccio interdisciplinare, ampliare lo sguardo ad altri saperi per formulare un’idea più chiara e fondata di geografia dell’incertezza.

Il consumismo ha un temibile avversario che ne demistifica i meccanismi sociali e psicologici. Il suo nome è Zygmunt Bauman. "L'Indice" Stress, paura sociale e individuale, città alienanti, legami fragili e mutevoli: la vita liquida è precaria, vissuta in condizioni di continua incertezza, con la paura di essere colti alla sprovvista e rimanere indietro. Ciò che conta è la velocità, non la durata.
