Translations: English (original) .

Twenty-one thinkers and activists from around the world gathered to discuss their shared interest in the commons as a new paradigm of politics, economics, and culture. The meeting yielded extraordinarily rich results: a clearer sense of how a new discourse of the commons might be developed; how it could be used to confront the savage pathologies of neoliberalism; and how it could serve as a proto-political philosophy for building more eco-friendly, humanistic forms of self-governance.
