The Psychopathologies of Cognitive Capitalism: Part Two collects the papers that were presented during the second part of the conference by the same title that took place at ICI Berlin in March 2013. This volume is the second of a series of books that attempts to broaden the definition of cognitive capitalism in terms of the scope of its material relations especially as it relates to the conditions of mind and brain in our new world of advanced telecommunication, data mining and social relations. It is our hope to first improve awareness of its most repressive characteristics and secondly to produce an arsenal of discursive practices with which to combat it.
