urban commons
Abstract: "In Europe, social, economic and technological consequences of the industrial revolution have brought several challenges to the use and management of the commons. By the beginning of the twentieth century, private property and market exchange became the dominant organizational logic and led to the gradual disappearance of the historical commons which used to shape the rural landscape of Europe. At the center of this logic was the emerging model of economic man -homo economicus- a self-interest driven rational being in contrast with homo cooperans who acts on the basis of free cooperation, consensus building and self-organization."
