Glossary

As we move through the semester, we will be building up a Glossary of new, difficult, or technical terms that we encounter in the readings. As we will see, the meaning of some of these terms seems to change drastically depending on the social position of those who are defining them. Our glossary should reflect some of these tensions.

Sovereignty

State of peace

State of war

State of nature

Commonwealth

Private property

Common(s)

Enclosure

(so-called) primitive accumulation

Right

Representation (political)

Capitalism

Capitalist Realism

Neoliberalism
