Капиталоцен: проблемное будущее капитализма
The author following John Urry raises the question on the future in the context of social theory but not of futurology. As capitalism is a viable system, that outlived its competitors in the framework of social theory is studied the future of capitalism. When it is spoken on capitalism as a system of economic and society organization, almost all the authors come to the conclusion, that it won’t be the same in the future. It will either disappear completely or will be transformed radically or in a more projected way. Though, the latter position of minor capitalism transformations does not exclude the global ecological catastrophe. That is why each process of capitalism transformation is complicated by the available problem of ecological crisis. According to the point of view of some authors, the climate crisis itself is undetached from capitalism (at least from carbon and financial ones), and all together they form a new geological era – capitalocene. Even if we do not admit this new and unsettled term, in any case, ecology is a necessary precondition of capitalism radical transformation, in whichever form it transforms. This is almost all social theorists point of agreement. Otherwise, capitalism has no future, and the future of capitalism is the future of ecology.
