* Pamphlet: WORKERS' COUNCILS AND THE ECONOMICS OF SELF-MANAGED SOCIETY. by Cornelius Castoriadis

Description

"What might the structure, social relations and decision-making institutions of such a society look like, in an advanced industrial country, in the second half of the twentieth century? Is the technological basis of modern life so complex that all talk of workers' management of production can be dismissed as pure 'utopia' (as both the beneficiaries -- and most of the victims -- of the present social order would have us believe)?

Or, on the contrary, isn't this allegation itself the real mystification? Doesn't historical experience, and in particular the working class experience of recent decades, prove the very opposite? Don't the very advances of science enhance the feasibility of a rational form of social organization, where real power would lie in the hands of the producers themselves?

This pamphlet seeks to deal with some of these questions."
