Enthropy and Life: Towards the Construction of Public Space

Alfredo Stein Stein Heinemann, Augusto Serrano, Alfredo Stein

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The paper proposes four moments that could help to understand the limits to which societies must adhere, and from which, alternatives to transform several of the acute challenges facing humanity could emerge. First, the physical-natural moment that suggests the construction of spaces to adapt to the environmental challenges, and against entropic mainstreaming. Second, the anthropological moment aimed to overcome social immediacy through the coordination of the social division of labour. Third, the political moment that gives form and substance to the political space as ‘public space’ and which creates a common good. And finally, the ethical moment that tells us that not everything that can be done should be done, and that we must be respectful of other human beings as subjects of rights and full equality, as well as of Mother Nature.
