Kees Van der Pilj's intervention
Underlines the overdetermination of productive forces, and society as primary pro. for.
Independantly utilizes Marx's abstraction to other fields of social relations,
Identifies historical structures and relevant patterns of foreign relations,
Overcomes the agency-structure duality and level of analysis problem while recognizing the primary role of power and classes
What is missing is a comprehensive analysis of change in productive forces, production relations (as far as know until recenlty regulation school, post fordism analysis is accepted)
-the vol. 1 of his project is published in 2007,
there is a refernce to Castells, H&N en J. Merk: 'collective worker', immaterial worker, TCC, distributed (Rifkin), informatized networked capitalism
P2P revolution and theory
Since 1970s a qualitative change in productive forces taking place: transnationalisation of production: financialst., ownership, world market. and labour processes..
The primary productive force society itself is changing: P2P as a new relational dynamic is rising, it radically changes all fields of social relations, as well as society (Bauwens)
Hyper connectivity and potential accesibility is the key for rising P2P dynamics and practices: P2P transnational production, gov, properrty
