Ecology, Technology and the Commons
In this chapter we present legal personality and sovereignty, taking into account their historical evolution. The focus is the progressive personalization of public authorities such as the State and corporations. We emphasize the limits of these abstract institutions in the light of the challenges of the global market and technological devices. We present a catalogue of materials that indicate a counter-hegemonic interpretation of existing legal institutions (worker buyouts and self-managed enterprises; new public corporations managed as commons; benefit corporations) as well as the emersion of new non-human subjects, such as animals and natural resources (e.g., rivers, tree, lakes).
