OPN Reading Group on Shoshana Zuboff’s The Age of Surveillance Capitalism
Shoshana Zuboff’s new book, The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, is being touted as the book that illuminates our current moment of history better than any other. If you want to understand how Big Data is shaping our present and future, Zuboff’s book is essential reading.
For the 2nd meeting of the reading group on April 10th, we will read Chapters 2, 3 & 4 (p.27-127)
Please feel free to come along even if you missed our first session.
The format of the reading group is as follows:
We will meet once a month to discuss a section of the book (roughly 100 pages per month)
One week before the meetup, we will upload a summary of this month’s chapters to openphilosophy.be
Each session will proceed with somebody brielfy presenting a chapter and two discussion questions
After we have covered all the assigned chapters, we will have an open-ended discussion
We’re looking forward to diving into this book and unravelling it with a mixture of philosophers, tech enthusiasts, and whoever else is interested. Obviously, the best way to participate is to read the assigned section, but you are welcome to come along even if you didn’t get time to finish the reading.
