Abstract

In The Neopopular Bubble: Speculating on 'the People' in Late Modern Democracy, Péter Csigó argues that the financial crisis of 2008 has exposed the novel forms of sense-making that have come to dominate public discourse: mechanisms that are collective, speculative and mythological in nature, resulting in autonomous discursive ‘bubbles’ that are largely immune to falsification. The book provides a foundation for a new theory of social miscontructionism, finds Justas Patkauskas, one properly suited to the times of liquid modernity.
