Whither the Time of World Structures after the Decline of Modern Space

Sam Han, Charles Lemert

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    In this article, we trace the development of Immanuel Wallerstein's formulations of time and space by looking at his various writings on epistemology, social science method, and geopolitics in which he has broached the subject. We comparé them with the ideas found in the writings of others who have offered more technologically-informed ideas of space and time, such as those of Paul Virilio, to see whether they may be withering as a result of observable processes in global history. We maintain that new media technologies, in particular, require a reconsideration of not only time and space but also the prospects for contemporary left politics in the twenty-first century, in which technologies will continue to play an immense part.
