Abstract

There are good reasons to believe that social acceleration has now assumed such disrupting features as to have become an authentic mark of globalization. In this framework, the article focuses on the passage from a phase of “time-space compression” to one of “contraction of the present”. In this latter scenario, the present itself cedes the way to a simultaneous and, de facto, de-temporalized dimension. The chapter indicates as a possible area of resistance to these processes of dissolving temporality (and historicity) the specific vision of time and space proposed by anti-globalization movements.
