Posdesarrollo. Contextos, contradicciones, futuros

This book takes up the theme of development in Latin America. It enriches the debate unleashed since the late 1940s, and especially includes the recent and growing criticisms of development with an ideological discourse of domination of capitalism. The accumulated collective failures, learnings and reflections, which prompted and continue promoting social mobilizations, open the door for new approaches. It is time to recover the important centennial experiences of native peoples on the common good or good living, reciprocity and the harmonious relationship between society and nature. In the context of so many pandemics unleashed by the logic of capitalist accumulation, this book -with profound and provocative texts- presents various pertinent approaches to the current situation. For its contribution to looking at the future of the world, for its visions on potentialities and contradictions of this collective construction, and for its powerful elements destined to construct other futures oriented by horizons of dignified life for human beings and non-human beings.
