Bought today, gone tomorrow? From linear to circular consumption

Melanie Jaeger-Erben (2020) Erschienen in: The Routledge Handbook of Waste, Resources and the Circular Economy

This chapter presents some conceptual reflections as well as empirical results from interdisciplinary research on the causes and drivers of obsolescence of consumer goods, particularly electronic devices. We will describe discursive and material practices in (re)producing obsolescence based on conceptual and empirical insights. Finally, the problem of one-sided or linear explanatory models and causal attributions is pointed out, and a systemic perspective on obsolescence is outlined.
