Die drei Ökologien

CC-by-sa & rasos

Félix Guattari beobachtet aus dem Blickwinkel eines Psychonalytikers das Weltgeschehen. In einem Text aus dem Jahre 1989 entwirft er das Konzept der Ökosophie - eine ethisch-politische Verbindung zwischen den drei ökologischen Bereichen von Umwelt, sozialen Beziehungen und menschlicher Subjektivität. Nur die Ökosophie sei in der Lage, aktuelle Herausforderungen zu meistern.

Auf Umweltkrisen wird es vor allem Antworten in planetarischem Massstab geben müssen.

Degrowth - A Vocabulary for a New Era

CC-by-sa & rasos

"We live in an era of stagnation, rapid impoverishment, rising inequalities and socio-ecological disasters. In the dominant discourse, these are effects of economic crisis, lack of growth or underdevelopment. This book argues that growth is the cause of these problems and that it has become uneconomic, ecologically unsustainable and intrinsically unjust."

This book is a valuable contribution to the academic discussion to design an economic system without the need for growth. ‘Simplicity’ is very closely connected to ‘conviviality’ and has an effect on the way we are living. Several aspects are being touched in 51 chapters, among them: Anti-utilitarianism, Care, Commodification, Commons, Depoliticization, Happines, Disobedience, Urban gardening, Buen Vivir or Ubuntu.
