The “spirit of Capitalism”, as characterized by Max Weber, was initially associated, in Protestantism, with the belief in life after death. Even after the weakening, as of the second half of the 19th century, of such belief, the “spirit of Capitalism” has been able to function as a defense against the reality of death, because it fulfills a displacement from an existential temporality to another temporality ruled by incessant work, parsimony and accumulation of wealth. This book examines war in the history of capitalism with psychopathology. (Imprint: Nova)
