This ebook diagnoses the counter-intuitive results of the rhetoric of price. It posits that the auditing of values pervades the cloth of people’s work-lives, their schooling, and more and more their daily adventure. The publication uncovers figures of resentment, disenchantment and alienation fostered by way of the dogma of worth. It argues as an alternative that worth judgments can behave insidiously, and include aesthetic, moral or ideological values essentially against the “value” they purportedly identify and describe. the gathering includes contributions from major students within the united kingdom and US with contributions from anthropology, the heritage of artwork, literature, schooling, musicology, political technology, and philosophy.
