Summary

The Productive Body asks how the human body and its labor have been expropriated and re-engineered through successive stages of capitalism; and how capitalism’s transformation of the body is related to the rise of scientific psychology and social science disciplines complicit with modern regimes of control.

The Productive Body brings together Marxism and theories of the body-machine for the goal of political revolution.
