Shaun Chamberlin at Schumacher College

Location: Schumacher College, United Kingdom | Authors: Shaun Chamberlin

A week long course with Shaun Chamberlin, with Rob Hopkins, Mark Boyle, and Stephan Harding. “How should we live?” “What work should we do?” “How can we resource ourselves and each other?” It’s time to reclaim these questions from the economists. Sparked by the posthumous publication of Dr. David Fleming’s extraordinary book Surviving the Future: Culture, Carnival and Capital in the Aftermath of the Market Economy (link is external), we invite you to an exploration of what ‘lives well-lived’ look like in this time of transition. Fleming’s work highlights that “most of human history was bred, fed and watered by another sort of economy. But the market has replaced, as far as possible, the social capital of reciprocal obligation, loyalties, culture and traditions with exchange, price and the impersonal principles of economics” As the market economy continues to crumble under the weight of its own impossible need for perpetual growth, we should admit that for all its destructiveness, we will miss its essential simplicity, the comforts it delivers to many and the freedoms it underwrites. And as 'austerity' bites and capitalism’s former largesse continues to shrink away, that future is becoming daily reality for ever more of us. Such a time brings fear and uncertainty, but also great possibility. The forces that have cocooned us are failing, but these are also the forces that constrained us. This is a time of loss and freedom, if we can minimise our dependence on the market and find sustenance with deeper roots. Now is the time to repair or replace the atrophied social and ecological structures on which most human cultures were built, as the basis for a nourishing, cohesive society that might survive the turbulent times to come. This is the story of our times, and living it imbues our days with meaning.
