Description

In this book Krzysztof Nawratek explores the possibility of a post-capitalist city, and in so doing, reclaims and develops the idea of total mobilisation as originally formulated by Ernst Ju nger. Nawratek formulates the idea of `accumulation of agency' the ability to act, to replace the logic of capital accumulation as a main driver of urban development. He argues that this `accumulation of agency' operates already in contemporary cities, and should not be seen as essential element of capitalism, but as a conceptual gateway to a post-capitalist world.
