Description

It has often become dogmatic in the left to favour tactics over strategy, the particular over the universal, the local over the global. Yet, any leftist project truly seeking to propose a post-capitalist world must contend with the forces of complexity, abstraction and globalism of contemporary capitalism, not to mention its ease with developing technologies. Accelerationism contrasts itself to localist forms of leftist organization in calling for a global strategy which will unite the tools of modern technocratic governmentality and economic management with a hegemonic class coalition, and a clear demand for the future shorn of the capitalist labor system. This volume aims to engage thinkers working with these issues to critically examine the contrasting demands of an accelerationist politics with those forms of leftist thought limited by localism. working titleshow more
