  7. The Prince by Niccolò Machiavelli

    The Prince" is a political treatise by the Italian diplomat, historian and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli. From correspondence a version appears to have been distributed in 1513, using a Latin title, De Principatibus (About Principalities). But the printed version was not published until 1532, five years after Machiavelli’s death. This was done with the permission of the Medici pope Clement VII, but "long before then, in fact since the first appearance of the Prince in manuscript, controversy had swirled about his writings".

    The Prince is sometimes claimed to be one of the first works of modern philosophy, especially modern political philosophy, in which the effective truth is taken to be more important than any abstract ideal. It was also in direct conflict with the dominant Catholic and scholastic doctrines of the time concerning how to consider politics and ethics.

  8. Four Futures: Life After Capitalism

    Author Peter Frase in conversation with Alyssa Battistoni at Verso Books in Brooklyn, October 13, 2016.

    Join Jacobin and Verso Books for the official launch of Jacobin Editor Peter Frase’s Four Futures: Life After Capitalism.

    One thing we can be certain of is that capitalism will end. Maybe not soon, but probably before too long; humanity has never before managed to craft an eternal social system, after all, and capitalism is a notably more precarious and volatile order than most of those that preceded it. The question, then, is what will come next?

    In Four Futures, Frase imagines how this post-capitalist world might look, deploying the tools of both social science and speculative fiction to explore what communism, rentism and extermininsm might actually entail.

    Could the current rise of the real-life robocops usher in a world that resembles Ender’s Game? And sure, communism will bring an end to material scarcities and inequalities of wealth—but there’s no guarantee that social hierarchies, governed by an economy of "likes," wouldn’t rise to take their place. A whirlwind tour through science fiction, social theory and the new technologies are already shaping our lives, Four Futures is a balance sheet of the socialisms we may reach if a resurgent Left is successful, and the barbarisms we may …

  9. Inventing the Future: Postcapitalism and a World Without Work

    Inventing the Future: Postcapitalism and a World Without Work is a major new book that argues for a novel set of alternatives for the future - alternatives which seek to rekindle a popular modernity.

    The book lists three "demands" on its front cover: Demand full automation, Demand basic universal income, and Demand the future.

    At this London Futurists event, the authors of this book, political scientists Nick Srnicek and Alex Williams, present their vision for that better future, along with their analysis of shortcomings in recent political movements.

    For more details of the event, see http://www.meetup.com/London-Futurists/events/231805688/. For more about the book, see https://www.amazon.co.uk/Inventing-Future-Postcapitalism-World-Without/dp/1784780960/.

    The event was chaired by David Wood and the camera was operated by Kiran Manam.

  10. Alison J Clarke - How Things Don’t Work: Victor Papanek and the Humanist Design Agenda

    Alison J Clarke How Things Don’t Work: Victor Papanek and the Humanist Design Agenda From the ManifestFest, the anniversary of the publication of Ken Garland’s First Things First manifesto, 22-23 November 2014, Warsaw, Poland Victor Papanek, author of the bestselling book Design for the Real World: Human Ecology and Social Change (1971) generated a popular polemic and powerful critique so as to inspire a generation of designers to turn their backs on conventional product design. Instead, 1970s design students embraced a political, humanist agenda that placed toys for disadvantaged children, hospital apparatus, and ‘indigenous’ technology for ‘developing countries’ above the mere styling of desirable consumer items. Attacking the corporate ‘Aspen Crowd’ accused of peddling design as an empty utopian practice, Papanek’s clarion call heralded a long overdue manifesto for industrial design: For he sought to expose how things don’t work both in the literal and metaphoric sense. This talk explores the origins of Papanek’s rhetoric and questions just how radical his ideas for change really were, and why they came to hold such an intractable allure. Alison J Clarke 
Professor of Design History and Theory and Director of the Victor Papanek Foundation at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. She specializes in histories…
