  27. 27. 5. Societal Transformation
  28. 28. Five Step Model After Klaus Holzkamp (1983) 1. Appearing of an embryonic form determining the future development 2. Rising crisis which can no longer be coped with by the dominant system 3. Function shift of the embryonic form towards an important mode of development within the dominant system 4. Dominance shift of the new mode of development becoming the prevalent mode 5. Restructuring of whole systems processes towards the new mode of development
  29. 29. Five Steps Graphically Embryonic Form Crisis Function shift Dominance shift Restructuring
  30. 30. What Does „Function Shift“ Mean? ● Peer commons become relevant for capitalism ● Capitalism supports the commons ● Logic of money and markets penetrate the commons ● Contradictions between own logic of the commons and alien logic of money and markets evolve ► Double-faced contradictions go right through individuals
