Hartmut Rosa


If acceleration is the problem, then perhaps resonance is the solution. This, in the briefest possible terms, is the central thesis of Hartmut Rosa’s latest book, which can be seen as the founding document of a sociology of the good life. It begins with the assertion that the quality of a human life cannot be measured in terms of resources, options, or moments of happiness. Rather, we should turn our attention to the connection to the world that informs that life and which, so long as that connection is intact, is an expression of stable relationships of resonance.
