A “world in common”: The avatars of a concept still subject to question

Our planet is a finite space which humanity needs to share: this is the image of the world in common which AFD has taken up as its distinctive signature. This idea of a world in common to a certain extent carries with it the idea of a common, or at least coordinated, governance. In the brief and selective overview of the history of ideas which follows, I recall, on the one hand, that a world in common is an old concept and that, on the other hand, it has experienced a great deal of opposition and vicissitudes over the centuries. In the light of these lessons learned from history, and in conclusion, I express the opinion that the future of this notion and what it covers is still subject to question today.
