ethos of → interdependence , these institutions did not want to → capture this effort by claiming ownership, but rather supported it, whilst giving space for the coalition to emerge organically. The semi-secret structure of the Year, with an anonymous steering collective, was the iteration of → radical pragmatism : not only efficient, but also avoiding any potential backlash from the authorities, wanting to ensure that cultural producers toe the official party line. The Year managed to achieve such scope by tapping into the social energies and

Communities Economies Research Network, that advocates for diversifying economic systems to empower local communities (→ I is for interdependence ). The term ‘diverse economies’ was itself established by the feminist economists J.K. Gibson-Graham in order to criticise and deconstruct monetised and capital-centric notions of the economy ‘in which capitalist economic activity is taken as the model for all economic activity’ (Gibson-Graham 2006 : 56). In introducing this term, Gibson-Graham emphasise the open-ended and complex nature of an economy, which

-chronological structure, it is that McCarthy has persistently paid attention to certain recurring themes: a human yearning for connection and meaningfulness; an awareness of the complex interdependence of ecological life; and a condemnation of human-caused destruction to the biosphere. His fiction has persistently issued calls for embodied ethics that take us out of comfort and into precarity, lives lived in recognition of and respect for complexity, contingency, and adaptation. Precarious lives are not, however, isolated ones; by turning attention to the margins of society in order to

directly to the driving theme in this book, stating that ‘Man […] is distinguished from the other animals by virtue of the fact that he has elaborated what I have termed extensions of his organism.’ In turn, Edward Casey and J. E. Malpas have also both reinvigorated the subject of place, especially the interdependence between the subjective and objective elements of place experience, as being worthy of renewed philosophical attention. The prime importance of the human body in spatial cognition and human perception generally is also firmly established in the second

European Parliament in the career patterns of French politicians. The increasing interdependence of the French and European polities has led to significant developments at the centre and the periphery of the French political field. New groups of politicians and civil servants, types of political resources, and posts in the administration and political institutions have come into being. Some of these transformations, occurring mostly at the centre, have received scholarly and journalistic attention. Others, such as the formation of marginal groups, have largely gone

important: the related trial of Jennet Preston of Gisburn. Historians have been at a loss to explain why Thomas Potts added an account of this trial in distant York to that of the Lancaster one. The simplistic assumption has been that the Pendle investigation threw up evidence relating to the Yorkshire events, which was duly forwarded and acted upon. Closer investigation reveals the interdependence of the two trials. The Yorkshire events took place only just across the county border, a few miles up the Ribble Valley from the Pendle area.

power’. Another is that of ‘interdependence’. These two mechanisms curtail the sovereignty of states and harness the anarchy of the system. To make the world even more orderly – to curtail the sovereignty of states even more – Lorimer proposed a third mechanism: namely, institutions of law which would regulate state behaviour through norms and generally accepted rules. Lorimer, in other words, formulated some of the most basic arguments of modern International Relations. He would have been a celebrated member of the International Relations Hall of Fame – if his

claim, then, is that an essential dimension of republican political thought is the difficult but necessary task of developing a theory of collective agency that is consistent with individual self-rule. Thus for Spinoza some form of political association was an inescapable consequence of our need for mutual protection and our desire for friendship or amicitia – an ‘affective’ interdependence that we cannot break but which, by means of our rational powers, we can at least comprehend and so master. In 1670 he wrote that ‘in a state or kingdom where the weal of the whole

by the growing interdependence and connectedness between human and non-human systems in the Anthropocene, the mainstream of IR research has been, on the one hand, dominated by the deterministic and parsimonious tools of the traditional reductionist mode of investigation and, on the other hand, underpinned by an inherent anti-biologism (if not biophobia).
