Consumption Norms and Everyday Ethics

Tomás Ariztía reseña el libro Consumption Norms and Everyday Ethics de Léna Pellandini-Simányi en Consumption Markets & Culture. En resumen:

Consumption Norms and Everyday Ethics offers a systematic analysis of everyday consumption norms by discussing different contemporary theoretical accounts of the links between consumption, norms and ethics. Author Pellandini-Simányi, who teaches in the Department of Media and Communication at Eötvös Loránd University in Hungary, takes a cultural standpoint and situates everyday consumption practices as embedded in moral repertoires. Thus it can be placed in the same line as other culturally oriented views of consumption whose origins can be found in cultural sociology, anthropology and material culture studies. The book is part of the Consumption and Public Life series at Palgrave Macmillan, edited by Frank Trentmann and Richard Wilk […] Overall I think that this book provides a welcome contribution to the growing body of literature focused on examining consumption moralities by presenting a broad and well-crafted theoretical examination of the normative dimension of everyday consumption.” Continue reading
