Abstract

Sustainability has become a leading principle of social change that combines different objectives – be it green capitalism based on ecological modernization or a socio-ecological transformation that could ring in a post-capitalist era. The social dimensions of sustainability as well as the paradoxes relating to a sustainable development in global capitalism are examined in this programmatic text by Sighard Neckel and his research team in Hamburg. Basic sociological perspectives of sustainability are the subject, as are prospects of concrete fields of a critical-reflexive social research on the social conflicts centering around sustainability.

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

Commons - the world belongs to us all! The never-ending global financial crisis shows: Market and state have failed. It is therefore not surprising that Commons, the idea of communal organization and use of common goods and resources, find strong support - not only since the Nobel Prize in Economics was awarded to Elinor Ostrom. Commons are more important than ever. They are not based on the idea of scarcity, but draw from abundance. This volume with contributions by 90 international authors from science, politics, and society introduces a modern concept of Commons that radically questions classic assumptions in theories of economy and property, and outlines a different culture of coexistence.

Abstract

In the 'life' of technical objects and infrastructures repair and maintenance are central practices, both economically and culturally. This book foregrounds these activities, rarely examined until now, and looks into the forms of knowledge of different cultures of repair. In the process, the expertise and political ambitions of human actors receive as much consideration as the internal dynamics of the objects themselves. The articles focus on practices such as watch or computer repair, as well as on spaces such as the home, the hospital, the Repair Cafe, and the city of the 'Global South'. In addition, the book also investigates the extent to which repair and repair-friendly design can contribute to more sustainability.&#xD;

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.

Abstract

This book should give you courage. It unites meaningful thinking with a new way of acting. The goal: a free, fair and lively society. But the familiar has become deeply engraved in our minds, in our everyday lives, in the market and the state. Silke Helfrich and David Bollier reveal traditional ways of thinking and design a program for successful coexistence, a different understanding of politics and caring business. The focus is on commons practices. They show how we pursue common goals in diversity. Practically, houses and vehicles can be created in a similar way to Wikipedia. The book also suggests how to think like a "commoner". It offers a language for the world of tomorrow. It's not just changing the economy and politics - it's changing us.&#xD;
