Return to Book Page. Preview — Vida Liquida by Zygmunt Bauman. Liquid life cannot stay on course, as liquid-modern society cannot keep its shape for long. Liquid life is a precarious life, lived under conditions of constant uncertainty. The most acute and stubborn worries that haunt this liquid life are the fears of being caught napping, of fa 'Liquid life' is the kind of life commonly lived in our contemporary, liquid-modern society.
The most acute and stubborn worries that haunt this liquid life are the fears of being caught napping, of failing to catch up with fast moving events, of overlooking the 'use by' dates and being saddled with worthless possessions, of missing the moment calling for a change of tack and being left behind. Liquid life is also shot through by a contradiction: it ought to be a possibly unending series of new beginnings, yet precisely for that reason it is full of worries about swift and painless endings, without which new beginnings would be unthinkable.
Among the arts of liquid-modern living and the skills needed to practice them, getting rid of things takes precedence over their acquisition. This and other challenges of life in a liquid-modern society are traced and unravelled in the successive chapters of this new book by one of the most brilliant and original social thinkers of our time.

Bauman is a true aesthetic, shunning entertainment, sport, and fashion as "distractions" turning us into diary cattle that capitalistic oligarchs milk.
Entertainment is essential to many peoples lives, life can be boring, and you don't have to neccesarily agree with what cantankerous 90 year olds view as a true living. I found the book unbelievably dry and devoid of passion. Don't read this. More like 2. I didn't agree with, almost, anything Bauman stated. And I also felt like he deviated so much from his thesis.
I'm sorry but I don't think Bauman really understands the postmodern world. Ensayo, o pensamiento argumentado, sobre la sociedad actual sumergida en la sociedad de consumo que toma a los individuos como consumidores en vez de tomarlos como seres humanos. Sociedad de mercado.
Lectura recomendable. I was with a huge expectation about this book but unfortunately I din't like it. It could be a very good book for students of philosophy or sociology readers but I'm probably not the focus of this book. Che delusione!!! Da un libro di cui mi aspettavo tantissimo ho ricavato pochissimi spunti interessanti.
