This book is the bone-rattling equivalent of a visit to the wild shaman’s house: you’d suppose you made the brief trip to get some medicinal items, but there are often more things in their brew than are dreamt of in your plans.Bayo Akomolafe
Post Capitalist Philanthropy takes us on a journey from the history of wealth accumulation to the current logic of late-stage capitalism to the lived possibilities for other ways of knowing, sensing and being that can usher in life-centric models. These “ontological shifts” are at the heart of the text. Creating emerging realities is not simply about how we redistribute wealth or “fight power” but, rather, how we perceive and embody our actions in relationship to a dynamic, animate world.
This work is a result of decades of practice and research, including a hundred plus interviews with leading thinkers, practitioners, social scientists and wisdom keepers including: include Vandana Shiva, Rupa Marya, Bayo Akomolafe, Tiokasin Ghosthorse, and Vanessa Andreotti.
