After Hartmut Rosa’s widely noted and successful Beschleunigung. Die Veränderung der Zeitstrukturen in der Moderne, his new work analyzes from various perspectives how the acceleration of social life affects modern subjects’ experience of, relationship with, and processing of world.

Global Relationships in the Age of Acceleration. Outlines for a New Social Critique sketches out the programme for a critical sociology centring around the identification of those social conditions and prerequisites that make possible successful individual and collective appropriation of world.
