No theory forbids me to say "Ah!" or "Ugh!", but it forbids me the bogus theorization of my "Ah!" and "Ugh!" - the value judgments. - Theodor Julius Geiger (1960)

Hartmut Rosa

Hartmut Rosa (* 1965) is well-known for his books and talks about acceleration, resonance and unavailability (uncontrollability).

Below you can see Rosa's 90-minute lecture "Living in times of acceleration", as delivered at Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. It gives a nice overview of his thinking. For more, check out his books (1) Social Acceleration, (2) Resonance, and (3) The Uncontrollability of the World.
