Capitalism is in a human, political, social, and environmental crisis.
The Rethinking Capitalism (ReCap) Webinar Series is an opportunity to reflect on the failures of our cultural and production model.
The objective of these talks is to foster awareness, cooperation, and activism among academics and guide policymakers in implementing corrective policies to bring our societies back on a sustainable path.

The webinar: Upheaval and Implosion, Toward a Philosophy of History of the Present
We live at a time of great upheavals. Every sphere of existence is now home to the destabilizing forces that are remoulding the environment, redrawing social boundaries, shaking up the economy and family relations, altering individual psychologies and political orders.
Although my contention is that the world is largely changing through upheavals, combined, the effects of such change lead to what I call “the implosion of history.” In this talk, I discuss the tensions and interplays of upheaval and implosion with respect to the war waged by Putin’s regime in Ukraine. And I suggest that this analysis may prove useful for elaborating a robust philosophy of history in the twenty-first century.
Presented by Michael Marder, IKERBASQUE Research Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of the Basque Country (UPV-EHU), Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain.
