*Neurocapitalism. Technological Mediation and Vanishing Lines*
Giorgio Griziotti
Foreword by Tiziana Terranova
Translated by Jason Francis McGimsey

Analyzes the changing politics of technology, charting out possibilities 
for autonomous cooperation

Technological change is ridden with conflicts, bifurcations and 
unexpected developments. Neurocapitalism takes us on an extraordinarily 
original journey through the effects that cutting-edge technology has on 
cultural, anthropological, socio-economic and political dynamics. Today, 
neurocapitalism shapes the technological production of the commons, 
transforming them into tools for commercialization, automatic control, 
and crisis management.

But all is not lost: in highlighting the growing role of General 
Intellect’s autonomous and cooperative production through the 
development of the commons and alternative and antagonistic uses of new 
technologies, Giorgio Griziotti proposes new ideas for the organization 
of the multitudes of the new millennium.

“it is rare to find a book… which is capable of combining a competent 
technical viewpoint with a coherent theoretical perspective… animated by 
a great political passion nourished by the ‘common learning’ of 
collective self-training.” – Tiziana Terranova

Bio: Giorgio Griziotti was one of the first digital engineers to 
graduate from Milan’s Politecnico University. His participation in the 
autonomous movements in Italy in the 1970s forced him to gain most of 
his professional experience in exile. He has an experience of more than 
thirty years in large international IT projects. Today he is an 
independent researcher and member of the collective Effimera.
