Defining peasant agriculture

The term ́peasant agriculture ́ generally describes a type of rural economy that practically does not exist in our society, which is dominated by industrial and service economy. The term remains present in people’s minds, however, as an image, a memory, something that provides them with feelings of existential security, an eternal constant within society.

This session will examine what is meant by the term “peasant agriculture” and if it has already been lost completely.
