Will Davies spoke to Joseph Vogl, Professor of Modern German Literature, Cultural and Media Studies at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, about his new book, Capital and Ressentiment: A Short Theory of the Present. They discussed the role of financial markets and information technologies in unsettling modern ideals of knowledge, the long history of these trends, the unsettling power of information and how financial crises unleash ressentiment of the sort witnessed in liberal democracies since 2008.
