Capitalism, by the twenty-first century, has brought us an era of escalating, overlapping crisis – ecological, political, social – which we may not survive. In this brilliant, wide-ranging conversation, political philosophers Nancy Fraser and Rahel Jaeggi identify capitalism as the source of the devastation and examine its in-built tendency to crisis. In an exchange that ranges across history, critical theory, ecology, feminism and political theory, Fraser and Jaeggi find that capitalism’s tendency to separate what is connected – human from non-human nature, commodity production and social reproduction – is at the heart of its crisis tendency. These “boundary struggles,” Fraser and Jaeggi conclude, constitute capitalism’s most destructive power but are also the sites where a fighting left movement might be able to halt the destruction and build the non-capitalist future we so desperately need. A crucial text for students of political theory, economic theory, and social change, Capitalism offers an invigorated critique of twenty-first century capitalism and an incisive study of our current conjuncture.
