Igor Stokfiszewski: Culture and Development: Beyond Neoliberal Reason is a compilation of articles on the issue of relationship between cultural practices (especially grass-root ones but not only) and social development. The book is a result of four-years research we – the Institute for Advanced Study run by Krytyka Polityczna (Political Critique) – have exercised under a supervision of Professor Jerzy Hausner – economist and former Polish vice-PM. The book is also a result of collaboration with European Cultural Foundation which supported us in presenting the effects of our efforts for English language readers.
The eBook is a free publication released with convenience that knowledge – especially related to culture and its surroundings – should be accessible without limitations to anyone interested in the subject. Below in this post, you will find links to download the publication Culture and Development: Beyond Neoliberal Reason in EPUB, MOBI and PDF formats.
I believe that we’re inside the process of finding accurate cultural practices and policies to express the democratic revolution we are all forcing to push forward. I was working on compiling this book with an intention to make at least one step ahead in achieving this goal. I personally found working on the book adventurous and intellectually exciting. I hope those passions are transmitted by the publication at least to a small extent.
Please, read it if you find interesting exploring our understanding of how culture, in its variety, different organisational and institutional forms, driven by citizens creativity, community oriented sensitivities and democratic spirit, can influence social development and struggle against economic and cultural inequalities, beyond what has been recognised until know as a paradigm of creative class and cultural industries, or – in the simplest words: beyond neoliberal reason.
