Globaali valta ja kriisit: Kymmenen teesiä vallan ja oppimisen dialektiikasta

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikelVetenskaplig


My ten theses on global power in 2040 are based on a realist analysis of open systems. These theses have a context: capitalist market society, nation-states and planetary economy after the Industrial Revolution. The first two theses concern the general nature of modern power involving Lukes's three dimensions plus Foucault, and the idea drawn from Deutsch that if you have power, you do not have to listen or learn. Next five theses concern capitalist market society understood globally and as a particular manifestation of modernity, for example: money can be translated into power, there is general tendency toward rising inequalities, and changes are closely connected to crises and wars. The last three theses are about the rational tendential direction of world history, based on the possibility of collective learning. I argue that the crisis of the 2020s is a turning point that decides whether we are heading toward a catastrophe or further collective learning, especially in terms of global institutional changes.
