Against Social Determinism

Jason Read
“None of this is either/or. Collaborative labor is an and-also kind of play. We have to get out of the grad school habit of treating everything as an argument between rival positions, where advocating X must be at the expense of Y. That’s the language of exchange, the market, of touting rival products, each excluding the other. Or that other bad habit, of thinking that X is by origins higher in rank than Y. That’s the language of authority, kind of zombie feudalism that just refuses to die. Those, least of all, are the labor point if view.”
