This book brings together the proceedings of the Cerisy symposium on "L’alternative du commun", which was held from 8 to 15 September 2017. We would like to point out several contributions echoing themes likely to be of interest to the readers of this Review, in particular concerning the links between "Public services and the principle of the common" (Christian Laval, pp. 87-102) and between "Common goods and uses of the law" (Daniela Festa, pp. 103-114), but also on the use of private law as "infrastructure of the common" (under the enigmatic title "Changer de soleil", by Michele Spanò, pp. 115-127, which sees in particular the common as an "antidote" to sovereignty) or on the overcoming of neo-liberalism (Patrick Cingolani, pp. 229-240) and of the capitalist enterprise (Massimiliano Nicoli and Luca Paltrinieri, pp. 241-254) through recourse to the "common enterprise" as a vehicle for new forms of solidarity(s). A stimulating reflection to be extended by reading the other contributions in other fields of material (housing, digital, education...) or literary studies (returns to the place of the common in Marx, Sartre, etc.).
