Convivialism: The Long Release from the 19th and 20th Centuries

by Noemi Gal-Or, July 2022. How can the convivialist ethos, of a political philosophy of living together in conviviality, and defying hubris, materialise in practice? A comparative approach places convivialism within the larger stream of similar contemporary discourses (transhumanism and posthumanism) in order to contrast its particular contribution to praxis. The convivialist uniqueness lies in its holistic and inclusive approach to communication: the pluriversalist language. The paper describes three examples of pluriversalist beginnings. It stresses that the pluriversalist process of communication must be spread widely, not left to representative and activist bodies alone but engulf everyone everywhere in all matters of life.
