Coöperism: Toward a Theory and Praxis of Cooperation with Bernard Harcourt

Sep. 26, 2023
12:10PM - 1:10PM
SLB Room 129
Open to the Yale Community

Please join the LPE Project for a lunch talk with critical theorist, legal scholar, and lawyer Bernard Harcourt. Harcourt will discuss his recently published book, Cooperation: A Political, Economic, and Social Theory (Columbia University Press).

At a moment of multiple crises, Cooperation highlights the urgency of cooperation democracy. Situating his work in the tradition of abolition democracy, Harcourt draws on extant models of cooperation across the globe to develop a theory and praxis of coöperism that recognizes our interdependence, ensures equitable distribution of wealth, and replaces a paradigm of punishment with that of cooperation. Published on the centennial of “On Cooperation” by Vladimir Lenin, Cooperation provides a positive vision for addressing our most urgent challenges today.

This is a hybrid event that will take place at Yale Law School (Rm 129). To attend in person, please register here. To attend virtually, please register at this link.
