As the next phase of world history

Mark Alizart: Cryptocommunism
BITCOIN: In a book that is both wild, elegant and utopian, accelerator Mark Alizart sees bitcoin as the very royal road to a classless society and a better future.

To look at the present as the past of the future

ACCELERATION: We have interviewed the thinker Armen Avanessian about "accelerationism" and the possibility of a new political thinking.

The control of society and the unruly

Hartmut Rosa: The Uncontrollability of the World
LATE MOTHERS: People today are gaining more and more control over their surroundings – but are losing touch with the world. Where is the limit for measurements, quality assurances, quantifications and bureaucratic routines?

Is renewable energy enough when the planet's total energy requirement is 15 TW

David Elliott: Renewable Energy – Can It Deliver?
ENERGY: We already have enough technologies to initiate a full transition to renewable energy sources. According to David Elliott, solar power also has a potential of a staggering 20 terrawatt – more than the world's total energy consumption

A planet we ourselves have brought into radical imbalance

Julia Adeney Thomas, Mark Williams, Jan Zalasiewicz Polity: The Anthropocene – A multidisciplinary approach
EARTH: Anthropocene means more than writing about ecology, environmental history or global warming. How about the greenhouse effect heating the ocean at such a speed that it is equivalent to pouring a billion boiling teacups into the ocean every second?

To salvage what is salvaged can

Peter Dauvergne: AI in the Wild
TECHNOLOGY: Are artificial intelligence and drones good news for nature and the protection of the planet's ecosystems?

From eco-nightmares to historical relief

Kim Stanley Robinson: The Ministry for the Future
EARTH OF THE EARTH: In a groundbreaking new collective novel, we can read about how the climate crisis is escalating and a new ecological world order is emerging.

Pain culture and mental strategies

Arne Johan Vetlesen: Pain in our time
PAIN: As in the movie Joker, pain and insults can build up and become dangerous, explosive and ultimately murderous.

Time has changed direction and is now coming from the future

Armenian Avanessian: Future Metaphysics
PHILOSOPHY: We are now in the violence of the future: the most important thing in life is increasingly something that has not happened yet. Philosophy must re-evaluate its old metaphysical categories.
