Abel, Johannes (August 2022): The Impossibility of Sustainability and the Reversal of Time. 14th Biennial Radical Philosophy Conference : Facing Catastrophe: Environment, Technology, and Media, San Jose State University, San Jose, USA, November 11 - 13, 2021. [PDF, 200kB]

Nevertheless, the existentialist figure of the reversal of time of the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard may open up a new perspective on the sustainability problem and possible courses of action.
