Omnia Sunt Communia : On the Commons and the Transformation to Postcapitalism, Paperback / softback Book

Omnia Sunt Communia : On the Commons and the Transformation to Postcapitalism Paperback / softback

Part of the In Common series


In this weaving of radical political economy, Omnia Sunt Communia sets out the steps to postcapitalism.

By conceptualising the commons not just as common goods but as a set of social systems, Massimo De Angelis shows their pervasive presence in everyday life, mapping out a strategy for total social transformation. From the micro to the macro, De Angelis unveils the commons as fields of power relations - shared space, objects, subjects - that explode the limits of daily life under capitalism.

He exposes attempts to co-opt the commons, through the use of code words such as 'participation' and 'governance', and reveals the potential for radical transformation rooted in the reproduction of our communities, of life, of work and of society as a whole.
