Marina Garcés (Barcelona, 1973) is a tenured lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Zaragoza. Her work is mainly concerned with politics, critical thought and the need to build up a philosophical voice that is able to interpellate and commit. She is author of the books En las prisiones de lo posible (In the Prisons of the Possible, Bellaterra, 2002) and Un mundo común (A Common World, Bellaterra, 2013) and, very recently Filosofía inacabada (Unfinished Philosophy, Galaxia Gutenberg, 2015). She has also written for many periodical and collective publications. In 2002, she was a founder, and is still coordinator of the project “Espai en Blanc”, a group initiative in favour of a committed, practical and experimental relationship with philosophical thought.

Unfinishing the World

Lecture by Marina Garcés

Who decides about time? Have we lost control of our temporality? Who sets the paces, durations, intervals and periods of our lives? The experience of time in our over-accelerated urban society is notable for the impression that the clock really is ticking faster than ever. In days which seem too short, we do not have time to squeeze in all the demands and needs arising from the various spheres of our lives: time for work, free time, time with the family, time for ourselves, time for sleeping, time to waste. And the technologies that were supposed to free time seem to have shrunk it even more. How is it possible that time has become such a rare commodity? Can we still regain control over our time?
