Book review: Against Everything | New Humanist

newhumanist.org.uk [cached]

Mark Greif's essays are an earnest attempt to examine the points of friction between capitalism and our daily lives.
Against Everything: On Dishonest Times (Verso) by Mark Greif Mark Greif is a founding editor of N+1, a New York magazine founded in 2004 which, in retaliation against a prevailing culture of irony and indifference, declared in its first issue that it was "time to say what you mean". Greif and his co-founders appeared to be answering the call of David Foster Wallace a decade earlier, when he had written in the Review of Contemporary Fiction that "the next real literary 'rebels' in this country might well emerge as some weird bunch of 'anti-rebels', born oglers who dare to back away from ironic watching, who have the childish gall actually to endorse single-entendre values." Twelve years on from the magazine's launch, Greif has amassed a collection of sober and enquiring essays on topics as diverse as gym culture, hipsters, the function of police and learning to rap. Greif has always been a remarkably prescient and insightful essayist - in 2006, he had already begun to write about issues, such as Universal Basic Income, that would reach the mainstream only after the financial crisis and the resulting Occupy movement - but his elegance has grown with time, leaving behind his earlier flirtation with portentousness ("Let the future, at least, know that we were fools... Record our testament[!]"). Some of the most rewarding passages in the collection are, therefore, the most recent, such as his essay on policing, or his editorial update to the essay on reality television, which brilliantly dissects the bland horror of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. And yet his anti-capitalist heroes are not necessarily those of the 20th or 21st century. In a series exploring the "Meaning of Life", Greif rejects the accrual of hedonistic experience or mere objects, and harks back to the first Greek philosophers, the aestheticism of Gustave Flaubert and, particularly, the perfectionism of Henry David Thoreau. For a writer ostensibly against everything, Greif finds an unexpected solace in the lives of others as an antithesis to one's own life, synthesising a new self and continuing the search. As he points out, "the instant for philosophy is always now, and every day, because some of us need a lifetime for it.
