On this episode of Acid Horizon we are joined by Jason Read, a professor of philosophy at the University of Southern Maine, to discuss one of his essays on Spinoza and Marx. The title is 'The Order and Connection of Ideology Is the Same as the Order and Connection of Exploitation', and will appear in his forthcoming book Double Shift. In it, Read assesses two contemporary French theorists, Frédéric Lordon and Yves Citton, who in their own writings explore the ways in which Spinoza can enrich our understanding of Capitalism. Along the way, we discuss the history of French Spinozism, COVID and the Great Resignation, capitalist myth-building, desire and ideology, and the legacy of Louis Althusser.
