The University: A Commune of Citizens

Javier Herrán Gómez, Jose Enrique Juncosa Blasco

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The first article (The University: a commune of citizens, by Javier Herrán and José E. Juncosa) deepens our understanding of the meaning of the university-commune from the Andean praxis around the organization and circulation of power and the management of resources, to establish who, about what, and upon what deliberative logics decisions are made. The line of argument begins with the recognition of the community as an emerging category of the social and political sciences. Then, it argues that the university commune is a collective to the care and cultivation of different types of common goods that the contributors to this book briefly describe: the goods of nature, the goods of knowledge, the assets of collaboration and the goods and possibilities of the Internet networks for decision making.
