Zygmunt Bauman – Modernità liquida

Posted by StepTb su gennaio 10, 2012

Liquid Modernity
Laterza, 2011 (first published 1999)
272 pagine

I don’t get why Bauman is considered such a brilliant intellectual, when his most famous book lacks both substance and rigorous research work. You can find tons of books or academic articles published in the social sciences that make him look like an amateur.
Both the content and the arguments in “Liquid Modernity” are flimsy and vague, when not just banal. It seems like Bauman just invented a cool sounding, marketable concept, and then had to fill pages and pages to justify its existence.
My sensation is supported not only by the actual content, but also by the writing style, which is confused and confusing, carrying forward a long post-hegelian tradition of messy, pseudo-oracular prose.
