Gilles Lipovetsky

Philosopher, Writer and Sociologist

Each generation recognizes itself and finds its identity in a great mythological or legendary figure, which wisely interprets the problems of the moment: Prometheus, Faust or Sisyphus as emblems of the challenge to power in modern times. Narcissus shines today, he is the symbol of our times

French sociologist, professor of philosophy at the University of Grenoble and Member of the Council for Analysis of Society, in his main works, and in particular in “L’Ere du vide”, Gilles Lipoversky analyses what has been considered the “post-modern society”, with recurring issues like consumption, contemporary individualism, mass culture, hedonism, fashion and the ephemeral, the mass media, leisure worship, culture as merchandise, ecology as a disguise and social pose.

POST-MODERN SOCIETY

It is the age of shift, sporting image that accurately illustrates a time in which the republic no longer has a sound base, a stable emotional anchor. Vertigo, acceleration, slip; characteristics that, individually, synthesize the phobic character of the new times.
