Abstract

We are living a time of crisis for both the metropolis form and the post-fordist circuit of valorization based on it. In this context, talking about a return to the land risks evo - king the practical and theoretical quicksand of a consolatory lamentation rather than a necessary effort of heuristic understanding and political imagination. Against this possibility, through an analysis of the progressive financialization of agriculture, we will show how the idea of a pure and pre-capitalistic rurality is problematic. Finally, we will develop the “back to the land” issue affirmatively, by connecting it to recent studies concerning the production of the common/s.
