Until the 16th century the work was perceived as inferior activity, carried out by slaves, women and commoners. 500 years later, most of us devote most of our time and energy to establishing a career in which we see a purpose for life. In the lecture, a history of speed will try to understand where we have been wrong, and what the Slow movement is proposing to do to restore the job to its natural place – a “supportive” life rather than a dominant activity.
Amit Neufeld lived the approach that says you can stop and take off your foot from the gas pedal. More than a decade ago he discovered the Slow movement, and since then his life has changed.
Today he writes a blog about minimalism and the Slow movement and has recently published a book called History of Speed: A philosophical and practical guide to slowing down.
