The common, the commons, common goods, the common good, in common, the communal... different and nuanced ways of appealing to an activity and a community management that most people now find very seductive and which has acquired an undoubted political relevance.

But how does it translate today, this secular aspiration that faces both the omnipotence of the State and the savagery of the market? What anthropological and moral presuppositions does the definition and management of the commons require? What kind of political transformations should we adopt to seriously discuss a world in common?
