In political and social theory, accelerationism is the idea that either the prevailing system of capitalism, or certain technosocial processes that have historically characterised it, should be expanded, repurposed, or accelerated in order to generate radical social change. Some contemporary accelerationist philosophy takes as its starting point the Deleuzo-Guattarian theory of deterritorialisation, aiming to identify, deepen, and radicalise the forces of deterritorialisation with a view to overcoming the countervailing tendencies that suppress the possibility of far-reaching social transformation. Accelerationism may also refer more broadly, and usually pejoratively, to support for the deepening of capitalism in the belief that this will hasten its self-destructive tendencies and ultimate

dbpedia-owl:abstract
  • Akzelerationismus (von engl. acceleration, dt. Beschleunigung bzw. lat. accelerare, beschleunigen, beeilen, befördern, fördern, herbeieilen, sich eilen) ist eine neuere politische Theorie: Sie will den Kapitalismus mit seinen eigenen Mitteln schlagen und seinen schnelleren Zusammenbruch herbeiführen, vor allem, indem sie aktuelle Entwicklungen mit modernen technischen Mitteln beschleunigt. In „Postcapitalism and a World without Work“ begründen die Autoren des „akzelerationistischen Manifests“ Nick Srnicek und Alex Williams dieses theoretische Konzept in erster Linie mit einem politischen Mangel. Ihrer Ansicht nach habe sich die Linke auf lokale und horizontale Politikformen (sogenannte „folks politics“) zurückgezogen und dem Neoliberalismus damit das Feld überlassen. Dadurch erscheine jede Veränderung heute unmöglich. Eine politische Gegenbewegung bedürfe nicht nur einer groß angelegten Strategie zur Erlangung von Hegemonie, sondern auch einer utopischen Gegenerzählung. Der technische Fortschritt, der heute schon ein Leben mit drastisch verringerter Arbeitszeit möglich macht, zeige eine solche positive Gegenperspektive auf.

Accelerationism may also refer more broadly, and usually pejoratively, to support for the deepening of capitalism in the belief that this will hasten its self-destructive tendencies and ultimately eventuate its collapse. Accelerationist theory has been divided into mutually contradictory left-wing and right-wing variants. "Left-accelerationism" attempts to press "the process of technological evolution" beyond the constrictive horizon of capitalism, for example by repurposing modern technology for socially beneficial and emancipatory ends; "right-accelerationism" supports the indefinite intensification of capitalism itself, possibly in order to bring about a technological singularity.
