Literary Spinach or Brussel Sprouts or Broccoli
by ryefish on May 1, 2007Okay, not the most fun read, but it is good for you.
It doesn't surprise me that so many online reviews I see of this book rate low. Most Americans, and I'm no different are reluctant to consider alternative philosophies on capitalism or marketing.
Benjamin Barber is not unlike all his predecessors. Since the beginning of recorded time every generation has had its outspoken critics who try to claim that the next generation is ?going to hell in a hand basket.? I personally don?t believe we?ve done all that bad.
Barber relies on the ideas of Foucault, Roseau and de Tocqueville and more modern philosopher, citing them readily.
I?ll admit, I struggled with the first half of the book and I would say that up to that point the arguments are poorly supported. This being said, the last chapters of the book reveal a deep insight and yes, some philosophical name dropping. But if this book stimulates a some deep thinking on the subject, I would consider it successful.
