MULTITUDE OF BLOGS None of the PDFs are my own productions. I've collected them from web (e-mule, avax, libreremo, socialist bros, cross-x, gigapedia..) What I did was thematizing. This blog's project is to create an e-library for a Heideggerian philosophy and Bourdieuan sociology Φ market-created inequalities must be overthrown in order to close knowledge gap. this is an uprising, do ya punk?

What is ephemera?
ephemera is an electronic forum for developing and extending discussions of critical perspectives on organization.

ephemera is transdisciplinary and encourages contributions from a broad spectrum of academics, researchers, activists, practitioners, employees and other members of organizations.

ephemera invites critical discussions of a range of issues relating to organizations and organizing in their widest senses.

ephemera encourages a focus on the ephemeral nature of the present, emphasising change, transition, possibility, becoming, movement, difference, transience, mortality, variation, engagement, intervention, metamorphosis.

ephemera provides a platform for a critique of present modes of organization, but also for discussion of the meaning of critique and for the development and interrogation of current critical discourses on organization.

ephemera offers a forum to bring together a variety of perspectives in productive dialogue and critical questioning of the nature of contemporary organization.

ephemera has specifically chosen to provide its content free of charge, and to charge its readers only with free thought. So feel free to copy, re-copy and distribute ephemera as widely as you wish. (But please do fully acknowledge the work of our authors.)
