Also, Rosa notes an important feature here: If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know. Houston, we have a problem!

Towards a social theory of acceleration: Time, modernity, critique

According to the acceleration bfschleunigung it seems that individuals are more or less passive victims of larger temporal structures and horizons.

Wenn sie Konzepte des Guten in gesellschaftlichen Strukturen entwickeln, in denen sie diese notwendig und konsequent verfehlen, dann ist das der Angriffspunkt der Kritik. This is not to say that Rosa neglects the importance of temporal intentionality see Flaherty,p. Paradoxically, in most cases, and in the evidence Rosa uses, this is the beschleunlgung type of acceleration experience: Spalding edsLanham, Lexington Books, p.

This impression of a rupture in time, resulting in multiple desynchronisations, is felt even more strongly because these accelerating forces seem to be moving so rapidly that they have become autonomous and totally liberated from linear time.

Also, Rosa only partially exposes the reasons why modern individuals and even institutions might opt for acceleration; let alone the reasons and explanations why individuals may embrace and find acceleration thrilling, both in a literal and figurative sense.

Rosa beschleuniguung that for the bdschleunigung time in years, people in the Occident today do not expect a better life for their children, but fear just the opposite, that their life will be more difficult. Even though many readers might, and probably will, intuitively beschleuniggung the study to dosa yet another prophetic and epochalist account on a fashionable theme; after a careful reading of the introduction and first few pages they will be surprised to discover that the very opposite of their initial assumption is true.

Finally, there is cultural and structural rigidity SAp. Was soll man heutzutage damit? In other words, the fact that we can communicate, travel, produce, etc. Cancel Reply 0 characters used from the allowed. Present to your audience. His first hypothesis involves the elaboration of a new form of institutional control and stabilisation of the acceleration process, which would result in a new equilibrium at a higher speed. Two conceptual moves underpin such a qualification.

He assumes that modern society will ultimately pay for its loss of ability to balance the forces of movement and immobility by provoking nuclear or climatic disasters [as a reminder, his book was written before the Fukushima catastrophe] roea by developing new diseases that will spread at lightning speed. Additionally, Rosa deploys a range of evidence that convincingly illustrates how the economic logic of capitalism and associated technological development undoubtedly account besdhleunigung the key substantial drives of modern acceleration.

Like a racing car uartmut creates air currents as it speeds by, this acceleration of everything—temporal instantaneity and spatial contraction—whose other name is hrtmut, results in a number of desynchronisations.

Moreover, the study is larded by operationalized secondary empirical studies and develops an original critical standpoint. Neither you, nor the coeditors you shared it with will be able to recover it again.

Hartmut Rosa: The acceleration of time

Constrain to simple back and forward steps. In the second instance, diagnoses of time throughout modern era have stressed its rigidity and deep structural standstill. How to explain such a paradox?

Contemporary capitalist modernity can, in fact, be seen in terms of a relationship between the dynamic process of technological innovation ever intensifying and extensifying production and consumption as well as ever tighter proliferation of communication technologies into the individual lifeworldthe static principles of flexible accumulation and the rather deepening class antagonisms: Different temporalities define distinct generations, social worlds, fields, systems, and administrative apparatuses, which counteract and mutually exclude one another rather than coexist.

In this progressive conquest of space-time, the universal coordination of clocks played a central regulating role.

For a critical evaluation of epochalisms in sociology see Savage This conceptual category reflects upon the late modern impression that the world that we live in is getting ever-faster. Numerous qualitative accounts and studies in cultural history convincingly demonstrate that this type hrtmut impression is recurrent for individual lifeworld experience in modernity, and in this sense this psycho-phenomenological attribute is barely a new observation.

Riding the RailsB. The increasing speed at which social processes and experiences transpire marks the principal parameter, which characterizes present-day modernity and differentiates it from its predecessors. Rosa, in turn, takes the initiative and provides series of conceptual justifications that help to qualify beeschleunigung relevant indicators constituting social change.

Yet, it is this disturbing thought that might incite creative contemporary social theory to imagine a fifth hypothesis to end acceleration. The investigation of acceleration experience then becomes a methodological and hwrtmut issue. The basis for such a programme is thus: Can we imagine alternate forms of equilibrium between movement and immobility?
