The 'excesses' of cognitive capitalism

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The article considers the research developed by the UniNomade project about the global financial crisis, within the theoretical framework of Italian 'workerism' and the post-workerist theory. On the whole, the UniNomade project offers a rich variety of stimuli to debate. However, in the work of UniNomade, there are some problematic elements, particularly when the authors evoke a series of 'excesses' in the 'cognitive capitalism'. This review article argues that the old post-workerist thesis of an obsolescence of the law of value introduces in UniNomade's work an ambiguous determinism.
