This multidisciplinary work departs from the Marxist materialist tradition by criticizing its logical flaws and its incapacity to work out a naturalistic materialism. Micocci argues that capitalism itself is based on a dialectical intellectuality enforced despite the non-dialectical potentialities present in the material in general. Capitalism, therefore, is a massifying system isolated from nature by an intellectual fiat, and has no capacity for theoretical and technical innovation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A strikingly new analysis of our economic and social system and its means of functioning brings the author to the very core of it, claiming that the whole structure of our society is nothing else but a flawed, dialectical intellectual mode. Following this controversial line of thought we come to realize that we are living in a sort of 'Matrix' world, filled with imaginary free markets and non-existent liberalisms. Andrea Micocci manages to use his deep knowledge of various subjects and vast erudition skillfully: instead of making them a burden on the reader, he uses them to create the needed suspense, pushing us to devour page after page. The Metaphysics of Capitalism is undoubtedly a timely book. -- Mino Vianello, University of Rome

Andrea Micocci reinterprets materialist philosophy and Marxist critique of political economy in a provocative synthesis that commands the most serious attention from anyone worried about the increasingly disastrous world capitalism has made. -- Alex Callinicos, King's College, London
