Value as a non-economic notion is one of the hardest concepts to tackle. Being immaterial, value is one of those core concepts that shapes society, influencing hearts and minds, but defies an easy definition. This book presents nine alternatives to regain personal power, find inspiration, shape a better environment, share energy and creativity, and build on a vital and just society. With an anthology of texts by a variety of contributors, the authors propose to place values such as hesitation, care, and giving at centre stage, in order to reclaim value from the logic of capital. Three artists’ contributions inspire a rethinking of the scope and language of the current value system.
