OPN Reading Group on Shoshana Zuboff’s The Age of Surveillance Capitalism
Shoshana Zuboff’s new book, The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, is an investigation of how the extraction processes of Big Data are shaping our present and future, and a critique of the business model underlying some of the world’s biggest companies.
For the 6th meeting of the reading group on Wednesday August 7th. We’ll be discussing chapters 15, 16, 17, 18 (pp. 416 – 525). This will be the final meeting on this book!
Please feel free to come along even if you missed our previous sessions.
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 https://openphilosophy.be/reading-group/
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.
