이 책이 속한 분야

Lauren Berlant is George M. Pullman Professor of English at the University of Chicago. She is the author ofThe Female Complaint: The Unfinished Business of Sentimentality in American CultureandThe Queen of America Goes to Washington City: Essays on Sex and Citizenship, both also published by Duke University Press, as well asThe Anatomy of National Fantasy: Hawthorne, Utopia, and Everyday Life. She the editor of the booksCompassion: The Culture and Politics of an EmotionandIntimacy, and (with Lisa Duggan)Our Monica, Ourselves: The Clinton Affair and National Interest.
A relation of cruel optimism exists when something you desire is actually an obstacle to your flourishing. Offering bold new ways of conceiving the present, Lauren Berlant describes the cruel optimism that has prevailed since the 1980s, as the social-democratic promise of the postwar period in the United States and Europe has retracted. People have remained attached to unachievable fantasies of the good life-with its promises of upward mobility, job security, political and social equality, and durable intimacy-despite evidence that liberal-capitalist societies can no longer be counted on to provide opportunities for individuals to make their lives ??add up to something.??Arguing that the historical present is perceived affectively before it is understood in any other way, Berlant traces affective and aesthetic responses to the dramas of adjustment that unfold amid talk of precarity, contingency, and crisis. She suggests new modes of temporality to describe our stretched-out present and explains why trauma theory is not an accurate way to describe how people adjust to crisis over time, in the midst of the ordinary. Cruel Optimismis a remarkable affective history of the present.
Cruel Optimismprovides important new ways of understanding subjectivity, temporality, attachment, and the political in the present moment. Lauren Berlant explores individual and collective affective responses to the unravelling of the U.S. and European economies by analyzing mass media, literature, television, film, and video produced in the United States and Europe since 1990. Her incisive interpretations track the emergence of a sense of crisis in relation to conventional notions of the good life and expectations of upward mobility, job security, political and social equality, and enduring intimacy. Berlant suggests modes of temporality that characterize the present, particularly the impasse and the situation, and she discusses new genres such as the "situation tragedy" and the "cinema of precarity," which reflect the eroding power of the fantasy of the good life and the ways that crisis has become ordinary. Given this "crisis ordinariness," Berlant argues that trauma theory, which focuses on the intense and extraordinary, is not well suited to explaining the impasse of present. Berlant advocates attention to how people register and adjust to the pressures of contemporary life and how these processes unfold over time.
??Cruel Optimism, Lauren Berlant??s brilliant new book, lays bare the price of our habitual ways of thinking about subjectivity, temporality, affect, attachment, and political investment. Exploring the condition of precarity that mocks the good life (or at least the better life) that hard work and good behavior are supposed to make possible within liberal democracy, Cruel Optimism??s bold analyses of the ??impasse??of the present and its unflinching determination to follow a thought to its necessary end make clear why this is a crucial, indeed, a necessary book at this moment-and also why it will inform our critical discourse for years to come.?? Lee Edelman, author of No Future: Queer Theory and the Death Drive
??Lauren Berlant elegantly weaves together readings of contemporary art, literature, and film to reveal how our persistent aspirations for the good life are continually thwarted. Reading this book is an exciting theoretical experience but it also has a very practical, immediate, everyday quality. Berlant gives us something like a how-to guide for living in the impasse, that is, the affective and political conditions of our present.?? Michael Hardt, co-author of Commonwealth
??This brilliant book will be much read and much cited. Lauren Berlant is widely regarded as one of the most important and original critics of contemporary cultural logics. Here she offers a genuinely new angle on familiar processes through her subtle yet forceful reading of cruel optimism, the psychic and structural dynamics that keep people proximate to objects, fantasies, and worlds that seem to diminish them.?? Sara Ahmed, author of The Promise of Happiness
