Utopia means “nowhere” so I guess its appropriate that our seminar on Erik Olin Wright’s Envisioning Real Utopias has been in the vaporware category for years. However, we’re finally ready to go live. We’ll be putting up a post every day or two for the next couple of weeks, then Erik will respond. Some of the posts will be fairly conventional reviews, others will take some particular point as a license to jump off in new directions. Enjoy and comment!
At the suggestion of a commenter “m”, here are some useful links
buy and read the book,
or read chapters here freely accessible here
or read an article that summarizes many of the points, here
or listen to this talk that also summarizes a few points, starting at 54:00
