The Future of the Noosphere
Institutionen för litteraturvetenskap och idéhistoria, Stockholms universitet.

Abstract [en]

This article examines the temporality, in the Koselleckian sense, implied in the Noosphere concept. The Noosphere, the sphere of the mind, is often evoked as a predecessor of the Anthropocene concept. The article's main argument is that the temporality of the Noosphere is evolutionary, epigenetic, vitalist and generative. Furthermore, it implies a long-term optimistic horizon of expectations that promises convergence and greater harmony among humankind. It also forecasts leaps into a qualitatively different future, in forms yet unknown to us. Finally, it is argued that traces of this temporality can be found in the Anthropocene concept of the 2000s.
