Dhe small-format volumes of “Happy Science” from Berlin’s Matthes & Seitz Verlag offer advanced theoretical thinking in iPhone format. Anyone who opens one of the latest volumes in the series will be immediately reminded of those years when great thinkers had no first names: Byung-Chul Hans “Infocracy” – it is not the first volume of the philosopher, who was born in Seoul, Korea, in 1959 and in 1994 with a thesis on “Heidegger’s Heart” in Freiburg, which appears here – begins with the greatest hero of the theoretical epoch, the French Michel Foucault – and his famous description of the “disciplinary regime”.
