Pirate Philosophy and Post-Capitalism: Podcast

In this podcast interview for Mark Carrigan and Sociological Imagination, I argue that if we are to move to a post-capitalist society, we need to experiment with new ways of working that are based less on ideas of self-centred individualism, competition and celebrity, and more on openness, collaboration and the gift. The university is somewhere we can actualise such alternative modes of being and doing, as it is one of the few spaces in post-industrial society where the forces of contemporary neoliberalism are still being overtly opposed, to a certain extent at least. A persona I propose we adopt in order to do so is that of the pirate, this being someone who tries, teases and troubles as well as attacks our existing economic, legal and political models.
