Book Review: TOTAL URBAN MOBILISATION:
Ernst Jünger and the Post-Capitalist City By Krzysztof Nawratek
Total urban mobilization seeks meaning and reasons for the probability of post capitalist city in future. Krzysztof Nawratek discusses the forest rebel concept of Junger to define its actors and agencies for the next challenging world. Historically, Western cities are ethical followers of Rome in many ways; where the idea of emperor always influential. His existence is implicit at the same time his presence evident from the series of voids between diverse social institutions, as Badiou described. Previously, scholars like Kevin Lynch identified district, territory or edge from experienced based ‘place making’ which is similar to Cartesian ‘neutral or tool based’ space creation. He brought the Chinese concept of ‘All under heaven,’ a complex system is not referring any physical and territorial boundary of city. The author has seen these boundaries as opportunity for different agencies that might coexist and interact. Network of proper coexisting of urban agencies can trigger effective actors outside the capitalist world as a ‘hole’. From such windows, non-profit logic of neoliberalism, ambiguity and messy contextualization will emerge as an alternative, post capitalist system in future. It might turn into a worldwide complex ecosystem, a second layer in global network in post capitalist stage. This is how Language could be re-invented in contrast to the Numbers, writes Ar. Sayed Ahmed.
