Bauman’s analysis of waste looks at the wasted lives of humans who can not be “recycled” or disposed of because the “world is full.

Rather than an uncaring universe, we are left with the book of Job — once again we are left with the inscrutable will of God and us merely His playthings.

This book bamuan no real solutions — but for holding up a mirror in which we can see ourselves reflected back, it provides us with a service I suspect too few of us will be grateful for.

Just like trash, we discard those who we perceive won’t benefit our lives. The book is on the idea of waste, and how modernity produces waste.
