On Wednesday, September 2, American anthropologist and anarchist David Graeber died unexpectedly at just 59 years old. Both through his academic work and as a political activist, he was an original and thorough thinker who exerted an enormous influence.

During his academic career was Graeber including Yale and Goldsmiths, before becoming a professor at the London School of Economics in 2013. As a political activist, he was best known as a participant in the so-called anti-globalization movement around the turn of the millennium and for his central role in the early phase of Occupy Wall Street in 2011. The latter movement's famous slogan "We are the 99 percent" is often credited to Graeber.
