Résumé :

The notion of solidarity-based cooperation networks, as an analytical category, results from reflection on contemporary social actors’ practices, understood from the point of view of the complexity theory and the philosophy of liberation. This alternative post-capitalist viability depends on the spread of solidarity-based consumption, of collective surplus re-investment funds and of solidarity-based co-operation between all people. The solidarity-based cooperation networks, by acting on the necessary conditions for the exercise of freedoms, can strategically advance in the construction of a new social formation, configured as a new post-capitalist society.
