Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Upon its publication in Germany in 1983, this author's book stirred both critical acclaim and consternation, attracting a wide readership. He finds cynicism the dominant mode in contemporary culture, in personal and institutional settings; his book is both a history of the impulse and an investigation of its role today, among those whose earlier hopes for social change have crumbled and faded away.

Book News Annotation:

Sloterdijk finds cynicism the dominant mode in contemporary culture, in personal and institutional settings. His book is less a history of the impulse than an investigation of its role in the postmodern 1970s and 80s. The work was originally published in German as Kritik der zynischen Vernuft, 2v. (1983, Suhrkamp Verlag). This is a paperbound reprint of the 1987 cloth edition (1585-3; $45.00).
