Until the 16th century 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, born 1975, founder and editor of the Slow movement website and author of History of Speed, Amit has a BA in philosophy and film and an MA in philosophy from Tel Aviv University. Married + Cat.
