Royal Institute of Philosohy Essay Prize

My paper ‘Surveillance Capitalism: a Marx-inspired account’ has been (jointly) awarded the Royal Institute of Philosophy Essay Prize. In this paper I draw on, but go beyond, the work of Shoshana Zuboff, and suggest that Karl Marx’s analysis of the relations between industrial capitalists and workers is closely analogous to the relations between surveillance capitalists (Google, Facebook, and so on) and users.

The paper has been published here in the journal Philosophy, and if you don’t have access to that you can read a draft here. You can also see me talking about the paper here.
