Measured Lives: Theoretical Psychology in an Era of Acceleration

  • ISTP conference at the Danish School of Education in Copenhagen 19-23 August 2019

About the conference

The theme of the 18th biennial conference of International Society for Theoretical Psychology is: Measured Lives - Theoretical Psychology in an Era of Acceleration.

Two dominant forces in contemporary capitalist societies are the conception of humanity as something measurable and the quest for acceleration, efficiency, and optimization. This may be a crucial part of increasing productivity, but the values and forms of governance emerging from the ethos of acceleration and efficiency may also play a role in inducing human suffering and in structuring that suffering as ‘new pathologies’.
