Hartmut Rosa: How to slow down life without stagnating society
30-01-2018 @ 13:00 - 17:30Free
Hartmut Rosa will be key speaker at a University of Humanistic Studies seminar on Tuesday January 30th 2018 on: How to Slow Down Life without Stagnating Society – Resonance in an Accelerating World.
Stress, burnout and alienation: according to Rosa, known for his elaborate study on high-speed modern social life, these are all symptoms of what he calls ‘social acceleration’. Three fundamental processes are at play: technical acceleration, acceleration of social change, and the acceleration of the pace of life. Rosa does not simply argue for slow-down. Instead, he pleads for resonance.
