Das “Mein” und “Dein” in Utopien

GSIS Utopia(s) Conversations on a Convivial Society for All

GSIS is organising a series of conversations in various formats that tie in with the themes of our Utopia(s) Reloaded Talks in October 2023. Our Utopia(s) Conversations will revolve around a Convivial Society for All, a Sustainable Planet and Meaningful Technologies.

After our first Conversation dealing with alternative forms of housing, our next Conversation belongs to the same category: it is about property and its criticism. Thus, the discussion of this topic is a genuine continuation and deepening of our last discussion, while it is also a fundamental issue that goes beyond housing and touches the idea of the commons in all areas of human life.

Our guest, Annette Schlemm, who will give us a lecture, participated in our Utopia(s) Reloaded Talks. She is phycisist, philosopher and author of a critical book on climate engineering. She will speak in German.

She says:

Heute steht in vielen politischen Kämpfen die Forderung nach Vergesellschaftung z.B. von Wohnungen im Vordergrund. Dass das Privateigentum als  Hauptübel der Gesellschaft gilt, ist nicht neu. Das „Mein“ und das „Dein“ waren schon immer heftig umstritten, viele Utopisten ließen für ihre Vorstellungen von Gütergemeinschaft ihr Leben. Aus welchen früheren Konzepten und Erfahrungen können wir heute noch lernen?
