Abstract

Das aktuelle realpolitische Agieren ist durch Alternativlosigkeit und eine beständige Fortsetzung des Status quo geprägt. Während sich die Gesellschaft technologisch und ökonomisch immer schneller entwickelt, fehlt es an Innovationen im politischen Bereich. Gleichzeitig finden politische Utopien als Medien von Zeitkritik und alternativen Lösungsvorschlägen für gesellschaftliche Missstände in der politischen wie politikwissenschaftlichen Debatte wenig Beachtung. Ina-Maria Maahs zeigt jedoch: Utopisches Denken als Denken in Möglichkeiten existiert auch heute und offeriert bislang ungenutztes Potenzial für eine kreative Politikgestaltung, die innovativ, nachhaltig und gemeinwohlorientiert ist.

Abstract

The logic of capitalism is that of dividing and sharing. Only that in capitalism, people do not share, but rather, they themselves are divided up. For this reason, the British historian E.P. Thompson claims that »it was always a problem to explain the commons with capitalist categories«. Whoever enters into the world of the commons encounters another logic, another language and other categories. In this volume, authors from all continents investigate the anthropological foundations of the commons, and propose them at the same time as concrete utopias (E. Bloch). They make it possible to understand that everything is, or can become, commons: through processes of shared responsibility, in laboratories for self-organization and through freedom in solidarity. Commoners realize that which is already possible today, and will become obvious tomorrow. This is shown by over 40 examples from across the world. This book expands our notions of the possible when it comes to the organization of economics and society. With contributions by Nigel Gibson, Marianne Gronemeyer, Helmut Leitner, Etienne Le Roy, Andreas Weber, Rosa Luxemburg, Anne Salmond, David Sloan Wilson and more.
