This ten-week course explores our shared and our unshared worlds, the commons and private property.
We obviously share the air with trees and other lifeforms through our inward and outward breaths; we less obviously share possessions such as real estate, cars, brands and inventions. A community shares something in common, as does a nation and indeed the whole of humanity. What appears to challenge this is a world of property rights and rent-seeking.
How can we distinguish between what is naturally shared and what is possessed? If the commons and private property are to coexist harmoniously, what are the natural relationships between them?
