Commons: foundation of a society beyond growth compulsion

Gemeing├╝ter: eine Gesellschaft ohne Wachstumszwang aufbauen


In this seminar the growth compulsion of the capitalist system shall be exposed and the commons proposed as a foundation of a post-growth society. It shall be argued that a post-growth society cannot be a capitalist one. Building on the critique of commodity-producing societies as necessarily growth-based, the commons shall be presented as a counterpart to the commodity. Commons entail a radically different logic based on needs-orientation, inclusion, self-organization and concrete forms of wealth.
