BOOK DESIGN — 2021

Capitalist realism is considered to be the most popular idea from Mark Fisher. It is based on Žižek's idea that "it is easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism". Fisher’s aim in this book is to review the conditions that make the current system seem inevitable. His conclusions are shocking: while Capitalist Realism recognizes that capitalism is not an ideal system, it persuasively leads us to believe that a different system is simply impossible. The result is a society with atrophied imaginations, a whole bunch of psychological disabilities and general apathy.
