This session will explore the regime of capital that displaced feudal property relations, and imagine its overcoming. We will focus on the debate within the Frankfurt School over the transformations of capitalism during the mid-20th century into state capitalism, totalitarian monopoly capitalism, or late capitalism. In the process, we will discuss the abolition of feudal property relations and paradigm shifts in political economy. We will also discuss arguments for cooperation as an alternative to capital.Buy tickets/get more info now
