Caliban and the Witch is a history of the body in the transition to capitalism. Moving from the peasant revolts of the late Middle Ages to the witch-hunts and the rise of mechanical philosophy, Federici investigates the capitalist rationalization of social reproduction.
In the 16th century, a new concept of the person emerged especially in areas affected by the Reformation and the rise of the mercantile bourgeoisie…. Capitalism makes growth and accumulation the goal of life in doing so, it restructures and re-presents time, extending the work day indefinitely, beyond the rhythm of the day, the seasons, the sensations of the body thus, to live in this state, one must accept alienation from the body, disavowing its needs, signals, senses…. Because the body appeared and was apparent as the vast container of labor-power, its capacities and abilities would lead to work…. The conclusion is, however, that the body is merely a MACHINE inert, unthinking matter, it does not know, does not want, does not feel only the mind is the source of this, and mind can overcome matter. The goal of this degradation is, however, operativity devising ways to subject this machine to control, direction, command REASON and thus, maximize its social utility. Open navigation menu.

All the world must suffer a big jolt. Yet central to this story has been the construction of sexuality as something that needs to be protected from capitalism's adulterating influence at all costs. Her refusal to write witch-believers off as unenlightened has produced some richly intelligent meditations on their -- and our -- world. Caliban and the Witchis a book published in English in , before being translated into French by Editions Entremonde in ; its success has earned it a reissue in Credit has crunched, debt has turned toxic, the gears of the world economy have ground to a halt.

More than ever, the 'body' is today at the centre of radical and institutional politics. Feminist, antiracist, trans, ecological movements: all look at the body, in its manifold manifestations, as a ground of confrontation with the state and a vehicle for transformative social practices. Concurrently, the body has become a signifier for the reproduction crisis the neoliberal turn in capitalist development has generated and for the international surge in institutional repression and public violence.
Мне нужен только ключ. - Какой ключ. Стратмор снова вздохнул. - Тот, который тебе передал Танкадо. - Понятия не имею, о чем. - Лжец! - выкрикнула Сьюзан.
