Positing dependancy as a "pathology (out) of position" that's particular to the (late-)capitalist city panorama, the second one part – Dope/Sick – conducts a critique of the existing pathology paradigm of habit, offering instead a theoretical reconceptualization of drug dependence within the phrases of "p/re/in-scription." Remapping the successive levels or levels of our narcotic modernity, the 3rd part – Narco/State – delineates 3 basic eras of narcotic modernity, together with the modern urban of "safe"/"supervised" intake. using an experimental, "intra-textual" structure, the fourth part – Brain/Disease – mimics the feel, country or scape of intoxication accompanying every one permutation of narcotic modernity within the interchangeable phrases of drug, dream and/or affliction. Tracing the parallel evolution of "addiction," the (late-)capitalist cityscape, and the pathological undertaking of modernity, the 4 components of this e-book hence jointly represent a users’ consultant to city space.
