Nostalgia. Territorio interior de disputa política

This book focuses on the recovery of the political sense of emotions, and in particular nostalgia, in the postmodern world, especially in the context of what has been called “cognitive capitalism” or “capitalism of emotion”. It is a challenging and risky bet, the attempt of a critical-categorical epistemic construction on the current forced migratory phenomena. In particular, the aim is to unveil the unconfirmed intimate fibers of the historical subjectivities immersed in the contemporary pathology of geographical mobility and to recover, above all, the political sense of nostalgia, from an angle of view that reveals the struggle – precisely political – that In this emotional field, a regulatory project and a liberation project are taking place. All this means, finally, a dispute between a systemic desire to submit emotionality to the logic of commodification, and a counter-will that aims and fights to preserve the human logic, resistant, resilient and rebellious, antisystemic of the emotional pluriverses that inhabit historical subjectivities.
