Michel Feher, The Age of Appreciation: Lectures on the
Neoliberal Condition

2013-2015

Visiting Professor Michel Feher delivered an eight-part lecture series on neoliberalism and investee politics. Neoliberalism has defined a brave new capitalist world in which financial markets preside over the allocation of resources. Investors not only reap an exorbitant rent from the production of others, they are also invested with the power to decide what is worth producing. This lecture series argues that the rule of investors proves as transformative of personal motivation and conduct as of corporate management and statecraft. Just as with previous shifts in governing practices, a new representation of human potential and human frailties—a distinctively neoliberal perspective on the human condition—is implicated in the financial turn of capitalism.
