The Great Reset. Restratification for lives, livelihoods, and the planet
Drawing on the example of “The Great Reset”, a policy agenda https://www.weforum.org/great-reset/ promoted by the World Economic Forum in response to the global coronavirus crisis, this lecture explores the idea that we might be currently facing an epochal transition from capitalism to “restorism” and, thus, to a society whose self-definition is dominated by (political) observations of individual, institutional, and planetary health issues as well as concepts of restoration or healing.
