Summary/Abstract: This article discusses minimalism and slow life as examples of anti-consumer-oriented social practices. The author presents the assumptions of minimalism and slow life (their similarities and differences), compares minimalism with the idea of voluntary simplicity (comparing mainly their systems of values), describes minimalism as a project of the self, and distinguishes a few variants—radical, economic, and luxury minimalism. The analysis is based on minimalist literature.
